    yieldsServes 6 to 8 time---difficultyeasy

    When Alex Witchel, the talented New York Times writer and novelist, came to interview me in East Hampton, it was a particularly miserable, cold, and rainy winter day. I served her a steaming bowl of lentil soup from The Barefoot Contessa Cookbook, a salad prepared with this vinaigrette, and a cheese board with Cheddar and Brie. It was a simple but warming lunch and we had a wonderful afternoon together. She graciously requested a copy of this recipe.

      RECIPE INGREDIENTS

    • 3 tablespoons champagne vinegar
    • 1/2 teaspoon Dijon mustard
    • 1/2 teaspoon minced fresh garlic
    • 1 extra-large egg yolk, at room temperature (see Note)
    • 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
    • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
    • 1/2 cup good olive oil
    • Salad greens or mesclun mix for 6 to 8 people

      RECIPE METHOD

    In a small bowl, whisk together the vinegar, mustard, garlic, egg yolk, salt, and pepper. While whisking, slowly add the olive oil until the vinaigrette is emulsified.

    Toss the greens with enough dressing to moisten and serve immediately.

    If you're worried about raw egg, substitute 1 tablespoon mayonnaise.

    When you're serving a salad for a dinner party, put the vinaigrette in the bottom of a serving bowl and place the greens on top. This can sit for an hour or two until you're ready to toss and serve it.
