Salad Lyonnaise is a traditional French salad from Lyon, made with frisée or curly endive, hot bacon, and a freshly poached egg.
Not one to have torn up bread with it when one could easily make buttered croutons, I made some croutons for it as well.
Okay, bacon, eggs, and buttered croutons and it counts as a salad? I inhaled it.
