The eggs play a wonderful counterpart to the bitter greens and earthy mushrooms. Make sure they are only medium-cooked so they are nice and creamy.

How to Make Bistro Salad with Bacon, Eggs, and Mushrooms


  • 1Combine the first four ingredients in a large bowl; cover with a damp paper towel and chill.
  • 2Cook bacon in a medium skillet over medium heat for 5 minutes or until crisp. Remove with a slotted spoon, and drain on paper towels, reserving 2 tablespoons of drippings.
  • 3Saute shallot in 1 tablespoon reserved hot drippings over medium heat 1 to 2 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove from heat, and stir in the vinegar and mustard.
