I have a confession. I have absolutely no idea what a bistro salad is. I imagine it is a main dish salad that you eat while sitting at a bistro. Since I have never been to a bistro, this is all just hearsay. My definition is that it is a main dish salad with an egg on top. Stick an egg on top of salad and I am immediately transported to an outdoor cafe, with a slight breeze, and a glass of perfectly chilled white wine. This is how my imagination works.
So, anyway. I have bunches of lettuce from my CSA. So I needed a salad ASAP. I had some pork sausage and some eggs and an extremely lethargic attitude. This is what I did. Tore up the lettuce into bite sized pieces and placed in two bowls. Browned pork sausage in skillet. (Yes, my sausage looks very brown. This is what happens when you sit down on the couch to play a level or two of Plants Vs. Zombies on your iPod while the sausage browns). Remove sausage with slotted spoon and drain on paper towels. Fry an egg in the sausage fat. Sprinkle sausage on lettuce and top with egg, drizzle with a little hot chili vinegar. Butter some sourdough toast, open a bottle of wine, and feel the breeze.
