Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
1 firm iceberg lettuce
1/2 teaspoon english mustard
1 teaspoon sugar
2 teaspoons wine vinegar
1/2 teaspoon dried tarragon
1 garlic clove, crushed
1 egg, hard-boiled and separated
125ml cream
freshly ground black pepper
salt
chives, snipped, to garnish
or parsley, chopped, to garnish

Method

  1. Remove outside leaves of lettuce, and cut away core at bottom. Cut lettuce into wedges, and arrange on a large platter or 6 individual plates.
  2. Mix together mustard, sugar, vinegar, tarragon, garlic and egg yolk. Stir in cream and season with salt and pepper. Spoon this dressing over lettuce wedges. Chop egg white and sprinkle over lettuce with chives and parsley.

Note

  • Make dressing just before serving, or the vinegar will sour the cream and make the dressing too thick.
