Laurent Madeleni is back with her delightful French perspective on a cool salad for warm days. Enjoy and thanks Laurent! Birthday_purple_flowers

Sun starts to shine again, flowers open up and smiles are getting back in streets! It’s spring time and it’s good time to discover new flavors. My previous recipe was a autumn one, this one is a mix of cold and warm ingredients, definitely a spring one!


Mixed greens, 2 tomatoes, 3 fresh mushrooms, 6 asparagus spears, smoked duck magret, bacon  bits, goat cheese, toasted baguettes, mustard, honey, oil, wine vinegar, and of course salt & pepper.


Place mixed greens in a bowl, slice tomatoes on top greens, add smoked duck magret sliced, slice mushrooms and asparagus onto salad, sprinkle on bacon bits. Place 3 toasted baguettes on a tray (they have several flavour on www.pierregourmet.com (I advise the natural flavor otherwise it overshape the rest of the salad flavors), slice goat cheese onto baguettes and place in oven until cheese begins to melt (even slightly burned is good). Flavor with mustard, honey, oil, wine vinegar, salt & pepper.

This isn’t the fastest spring meal to make but is worth it. It is actually really easy to eat and goes well along with a liquorous white wine (really sweet) like a Jurancon, Coteaux du Layon or a 100% Chardonnay (should be at least 3 years old).
