French Frisée Salad with Bacon and Poached Eggs

    344 calories and 23 grams of fat for a salad?? Are you kidding? I prepared this as a "light" side to CL Creamy Rigatoni with Gruyere and Brie, which is rich enough in itself; I noticed the salad's nutritional info at the last minute, added some extra greens and cut the amount of dressing in half. It was still very tasty and rounded out the pasta nicely. I would certainly make this again, but either with the above modifications or as an entree salad with a light soup on the side.

    This was so good. I've never poached eggs before and found it to be easier then I thought. We love to go to a local french bistro around us and then salad could easily have been on the menu. It was delicious. I followed the directions exactly except I used all the bacon drippings.

    To the previous reviewer: I'm sorry, but who in their right mind would consider a salad with poached eggs and bacon to be a side dish? Please don't knock the recipe because of your own ignorance. Friseee salad is served as a light main dish, typically with a few pieces of crusty bread. This was a good interpretation of the classic.
