Greens with Hard-Boiled Eggs and Prosciutto

This salad tastes fantastic with a poached egg on top, too. Feel free to substitute extra-crisp bacon or rendered bits of pancetta for the prosciutto.

  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh tarragon leaves
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • Pinch sea salt
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 pound mixed greens
  • 4 hard-boiled eggs, peeled and sliced
  • 1/2 cup prosciutto, sliced and crisped in a pan with olive oil
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • Snipped fresh chives for garnish


In a small bowl, whisk together tarragon, Dijon mustard, sea salt, red wine vinegar, and olive oil. In a large bowl, toss the greens with enough of the dressing to coat them lightly. Divide the salad onto 4 plates and top with hard-boiled egg slices and prosciutto pieces. Add freshly ground pepper and chives to taste. Serves 4.
