Nutritionist Tested & Approved

Time: 20 minutes

Ingredients
  • 2-3 cloves garlic, minced

  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt

  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper, or to taste

  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice

  • 1 tablespoon sherry vinegar

  • 3-4 anchovy fillets, rinsed and chopped

  • 1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil

  • 12 cups chopped mixed bitter salad greens, such as chicory, radicchio and escarole

  • 3 large hard-boiled eggs, (see Tip)

Directions
  1. Place garlic to taste in a large salad bowl and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Add lemon juice and vinegar; let stand for 5 minutes. Stir in anchovies to taste. Whisk in oil in a slow steady stream until well combined.

  2. Add salad greens and toss. Shred 3 egg whites and 1 egg yolk through the large holes of a box grater (reserve the remaining yolks for another use or discard). Sprinkle the salad with the grated egg.

Tip: To hard-boil eggs, place eggs in a single layer in a saucepan; cover with water. Bring to a simmer over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to low and cook at the barest simmer for 10 minutes. Remove from heat, pour out hot water and cover the eggs with ice-cold water. Let stand until cool enough to handle before peeling.

If preparing ahead of time: Prepare the dressing (Step 1), cover and refrigerate for up to 1 day.
