  • 2 tablespoons diced shallot
  • ¼ cup (60 ml) red-wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon + 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • ½ teaspoon fine sea or kosher salt
  • ¼ teaspoon finely ground black pepper
  • ¼ cup + 2 tablespoons (90 ml) mild extra-virgin olive oil (or a blend of olive oil and sunflower oil)


  • 1 recipe Grilled Tofu
  • 1 cup Coconut Bacon
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 head romaine lettuce, washed and torn into bite-sized pieces or coarsely chopped
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, stemmed and halved
  • 2 large California avocados, firm-ripe, peeled, pitted, and sliced
  • 2 ounces blue cheese or goat cheese, crumbled
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped chives
  • Flaky salt and coarsely ground black pepper


Make the dressing:

  • Combine the shallot, vinegar, mustard, salt, pepper, and olive oil in a small blender.
  • Blend until smooth and thick.
  • Taste and adjust the seasoning if you feel it needs more salt or olive oil.

Make the salad:

  • Place the eggs in a small saucepan, cover with 1 inch of water, and bring to a rolling boil over medium-high heat. Remove the pot from the heat, cover, and let sit 7 minutes. Drain the eggs, fill the pot with ice and cool water, and let sit 10 minutes. Peel the eggs and cut into halves or slices.
  • Toss the lettuce with some of the dressing to coat, then arrange on a platter or serving bowl.
  • Top with the coconut bacon, eggs, tomatoes, avocados, and grilled tofu.
  • Sprinkle the cheese and chives over the salad, drizzle with more dressing, flaky salt, and pepper, and serve.
