  • 1 tablespoon honey-Dijon mustard
  • 2/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • Salad
  • 1/2 head romaine lettuce, chopped (about 3 to 4 cups)
  • 1/2 head Boston lettuce, chopped (about 3 to 4 cups)
  • 1 1/2 cups watercress, stems removed and chopped
  • 3 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves, cooked and diced into 1/2-inch cubes
  • 6 bacon slices, cooked and crumbled
  • 2 avocados, halved, pitted, peeled and diced into 1/2-inch cubes

  • 3/4 cup Roquefort cheese, crumbled
  • 1 hard-boiled large egg, forced through a sieve (grated)

Directions
To make the dressing:

Whisk together the grated cheese, vinegar, and mustard. In a slow steady stream, whisk in the olive oil until emulsified. Season the vinaigrette with salt, and pepper to taste.

To make the salad:

Rinse and dry all the salad greens, and toss them together in a large bowl. Arrange the chicken, bacon, avocado, tomato, and Roquefort in uniform rows on top the mixed greens. Garnish with the grated hard-boiled egg, and chives.

Just before serving, pour the dressing over the salad and toss.
