Ingredients

  • 4 eggs
  • 5 slices bacon
  • 10 cups torn romaine lettuce (about 1 head)
  • 1/2 cup thinly sliced red onion
Dressing:
  • 1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon grainy mustard
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon each salt and pepper

Method

Arrange eggs in single layer in saucepan; pour in enough cold water to come at least 1 inch (2.5 cm) above eggs. Cover and bring to boil over high heat. Immediately remove from heat; let stand for 20 minutes. Drain and chill eggs in cold water. Peel and cut each egg into quarters. Set aside.

Meanwhile, in skillet, fry bacon over medium-high heat until crisp, about 5 minutes. Drain on paper towel; crumble.

Dressing: In large bowl, whisk together oil, vinegar, mustard, garlic, salt and pepper. Add lettuce, onion and bacon; toss to coat. Garnish with eggs.
