The beautifully balanced combination of extra-virgin olive oil and roasted almond oil adds dimension and a delightful nutty aroma to this a simple tarragon vinaigrette. Topping off the mixed greens with a poached egg makes the dish a vegetarian entrée for four, but it can also be served as a side salad—simply divide the greens among six plates and either omit or increase the number of eggs.

How to make

  • Step 1

    Bring saucepan of salted water to a boil. Add asparagus; cook, stirring occasionally, until tender-crisp, 2 to 4 minutes. Transfer with slotted spoon to bowl of ice water to chill; drain well. Set aside.

  • Step 2

    Add enough water to large saucepan or deep skillet to come 2 to 3 inches (5 to 8 cm) up side; bring to a simmer over medium-high heat. Crack 1 egg into small bowl; gently slide egg into pan. Repeat with remaining eggs. Remove from heat; cover and let stand until whites are set but yolks are still runny, 3 to 4 minutes. Transfer with slotted spoon to paper towel–lined plate to drain. Set aside.

  • Step 3

    Whisk together shallot, vinegar, mustard, tarragon and all but pinch salt and pepper in large bowl; gradually whisk in almond oil and olive oil in thin steady stream until combined.

  • Step 4

    Add asparagus, lettuce and arugula to vinaigrette; toss to coat. Divide salad among 4 plates; top each with 1 poached egg. Sprinkle eggs with remaining pinch salt and pepper.
