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

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
