Savoury Salad a la Francaise

Thanks for voting! You already voted!
I modeled this salad after the kind you get in French bistros -- more a meal than a salad and great for taking as a packed lunch. A little bit of blue Cheese mixed in would be divine, if you enjoy that kind of thing.

Savoury Salad a la Francaise

Ingredients Needed For Savoury Salad a la Francaise
* 1 large Potato
* 2 eggs
* 6-8 slices Bacon
* 1/2 red pepper, finely chopped
* 4 Mushrooms, sliced (preferrably chestnut)
* 1 small red onion, finely chopped

Directions To Prepare Savoury Salad a la Francaise
Wash the Potato, then cut it into small wedges.<BR>
Boil the Potato until just tender and let cool when done.<BR>
At the same time, boil the eggs until hard boiled (about 10 minutes).<BR>
Meanwhile, fry the Bacon until it is as crispy as you like it.<BR>
Once the Bacon is cooked, use the fat in the pan to cook the Mushrooms and onions.<BR>
Set the Mushrooms and onions aside when done.<BR>
In a small bowl, whisk together the oil and mustard.<BR>
Throw the cucumber into the bowl, along with about half the herbs and the garlic.<BR>
When the eggs are cooked, peel and let cool.<BR>
When all the ingredients have cooled, get a big bowl and put the lettuce in, along with everything else prepared to this point except the eggs.<BR>
Use your hands to mix the salad, making sure the dressing coats everything.<BR>
Put salad evenly into two bowls.<BR>
Chop the eggs into four wedges each and use as a garnish.<BR>
Sprinkle remaining herbs on top and serve with a touch of pepper, if desired.
