Ingredients
  • 4 cups court bouillon
  • 16 langoustine tails
  • 1/2 lemon
  • 8 baby artichokes
  • 8 ounces taleggio cheese, without rind
  • 1 cup seedless green grapes
  • 1 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 cup verjus
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 cups baby frisee
Directions

Bring the court bouillon to a simmer in a large braising pan. Add the langoustines and poach them in the court bouillon until they're firm to the touch, 2 to 3 minutes. Drain, and keep the langoustines warm.

Fill a bowl with water and squeeze a little lemon juice into the bowl. Slice the artichokes thinly and immediately put them in the acidulated water. Slice the taleggio into sticks about 1 1/2-inches long by 1/4-inches wide.

In a blender, puree the grapes, olive oil, and verjus. Season lightly with salt and pepper. In a large bowl, combine the frisee, drained artichokes (pat them dry with paper towels), and the cheese. Season with salt and pepper and toss with 1/2 cup of the grape puree.

To serve, mound the salad in the center of a plate, top with a few langoustines and drizzle extra dressing over the top. Finish with freshly ground pepper. Serve immediately.
