This recipe for a rustic, flavorful, peasant-style salad is sure to bring a unique experience to your dinner. Starting with endive (also called chicory or frisée) for its bitter flavor and vivid color, this recipe adds diced tomatoes, applewood smoked bacon, chanterelle mushrooms, and sautéed chicken liver. The salad is mixed with a vinaigrette dressing made from an emulsion of creole mustard, sherry vinegar and olive oil, and topped with two whole poached eggs.
