From the Brittany region by Philippe Mouchel

This classic Breton salad was named aft er the coastal town of Roscoff in Brittany. The locals adore cauliflower which is just as important as the prawns in this lovely salad. For an elegant presentation, use 10 cm PVC rings.


Quantity Ingredient
1/4 cauliflower, cut into medium florets
12cm piece of cucumber, cut into cubes
2 potatoes, cooked in their skins and cubed
1 egg yolk
1 teaspoon dijon mustard
freshly ground pepper
1 lemon
125ml extra-virgin olive oil, plus 2 tablespoons extra
3 tablespoons cream
3 tablespoons chervil leaves
3 tablespoons tarragon leaves
16 cooked prawns, peeled and deveined
4 hard-boiled eggs, quartered


  1. Cook the cauliflower florets in boiling salted water for a few minutes, until just tender. Drain and cool in cold water. Drain again and cut into smaller pieces.
  2. Place the cauliflower, cucumber and potato in a bowl.
  3. In a second bowl make a mayonnaise by whisking the egg yolk with the mustard, a little salt and pepper and a few drops of lemon juice. Slowly drizzle in 125 ml of olive oil, whisking continuously until thick and creamy. Whisk in the cream and set aside.
  4. Roughly chop two-thirds of the chervil and tarragon leaves, reserving the rest for garnish. Add to the vegetables and toss with the extra 2 tablespoons of olive oil.
  5. Carefully spread 2 tablespoons of the creamy mayonnaise over each of the 4 plates. Place a PVC ring in the centre and spoon a few tablespoons of the vegetable salad into the rings. Lift the ring away carefully.
  6. Divide the prawns and hard-boiled eggs between the plates, arranging them attractively around the vegetable salad. Scatter with the reserved chervil and tarragon on top and serve.
