Staying with friends and lingering over a late breakfast is a rare treat. Catharine served us this versatile dish – can be a healthy dish for brunch if you add scrambled eggs, a dinner party appetizer or a light lunch. The dressing is a kind of mayonnaise but so easy to make unlike real mayonnaise where the oil has to be dripped in slowly and there is the possibility of curdling.
I am giving the ingredients per person:
Handful of arugula
2 slices of smoked salmon – cut into small pieces
1/2 an avocado – diced
Compose the ingredients on a plate
Dressing (makes more than needed)
1 egg yolk
1 tbsp. white wine vinegar
1 tbsp. coarse mustard
2 pinches sugar
5 fl. oz olive oil
Whisk egg yolk, vinegar, mustard and sugar together then add the oil a little at a time and continue whisking all the while.
Put little blobs of dressing around the plate.
