my favorite frenchy salad

Last night I tried doing an awesome salad I tried at a brasserie near L'Opéra de Paris last time I was around (which is, by the way, not very often). It's basically two types of lettuce, dates filled with roquefort, small toasts with camembert, prociutto and a passion fruit dressing. This is what it looks like... minus the dressing, obviously.

Gazpacho: the perfect entree during summer days and nights.
Perfectly refreshing, amazing flavors and diet-y.

8 Big tomatoes - seeded
1 Green pepper- seeded
1 Large cucumber - seeded
3 Cloves garlic
1 Medium size onion
1/4 lb prociutto
Parmesan cheese
Olive oil

Combine the tomatoes, the green pepper, the large cucumber, the garlic cloves and the onion in a blender or food processor while seasoning with olive oil, salt and pepper. Once it's all processed, chill for a couple of hours.

Just before serving it, cut in to very small pieces the prociutto and sprinkle it in the gazpacho with the croutons and the parmesan. Guaranteed succes.

La Cave du Roy

Perfect little french restaurant, both décadante and decadent. Perfect food, awesome wine, nice music.


Deep fried camembert with passion fruit sauce.


Getting there:

It's right there, where the red thingy is.

Bon appétit!
