Total time: 25 minutes | Serves 1

Champagne vinaigarette

  • 1/4 teaspoon yellow mustard
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 2 tablespoons Champagne vinegar
  • 5 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • Salt and cracked pepper

Step 1In a bowl, whisk together the mustard and egg yolk. Whisk in the vinegar, then the olive oil in a slow drizzle. Taste, seasoning with salt and pepper and adjusting the flavorings if desired. This makes a scant one-half cup dressing. The dressing will keep, covered and chilled, up to 3 days.

Chopped salad

  • 2 cups chopped romaine and iceberg lettuce, cut into 1/8-inch-thick strips
  • 1/4 cup chopped white cheddar
  • 1/4 cup diced pepperoni, cut into 1/2-inch dice
  • 1/4 cup diced cucumber, cut into 1/2-inch dice
  • 1 tablespoon green brined olives (such as picholine)
  • 1 tablespoon black oil-cured olives (such as beldi)
  • 1 tablespoon golden raisins
  • 1 tablespoon pistachios
  • Champagne vinaigrette, divided
  • 2 tablespoons julienned fresh basil
  • Fresh cracked pepper, to taste

Step 1In a large bowl, toss the lettuces with the cheddar, pepperoni, cucumber, olives, raisins and pistachios. Toss with 4 tablespoons vinaigrette, then continue to add a little more until the salad is coated to taste; you may not use all the vinaigrette. Transfer to a chilled plate and garnish with basil and cracked pepper.
