Truffle Salad
( La Salade Truffé)

Truffle salad is a very simple, yet wonderful accompaniment to any main course, as the season for salads approach, plant your favourite lettuce. I recommend the chicorée-frisée with this recipe.

Truffles or Truffes in France, are a group of valuable and highly sought-after, edible underground fungi. The most saught after truffle is the Black truffle or Black Périgord Truffle (Tuber melanosporum) also known as the Black Diamond and comes from the Périgord region in France as does this traditional recipe. This famous food has an aroma all to itself, it can impregnate salads, eggs, and rice to enhance the flavour of your dish.
