Warm bistro salad with feta function


For the potatoes, bacon, mushrooms and salad

  • 8 ounces small potatoes, washed, dried and cut in half
  • 3 rooms Bacon
  • 3 soup spoons olive oil, Split
  • salt pepper, to taste
  • 1/4 Red onion, minced
  • 4 ounces sliced ​​mushrooms, baby Bella or similar
  • 1 Clove Garlic, chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 head red leaf lettuce, (or similar), washed and chopped
  • 2 hard boiled eggs, diced

For the potatoes and bacon

  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Place the sliced ​​potatoes on half of a baking sheet. Mix with 1 tablespoon of olive oil, salt and pepper. Make an aluminum sheet with sides on the other half of the baking sheet and place the bacon pieces inside (to contain the fat).

  2. After about 15 minutes, if the bacon is golden and cooked (no longer pink), carefully remove the aluminum tray (without spilling the hot fat!) And return the potatoes to the oven until they are tender when pierced with a fork, another 5-10 minutes. Crumble the bacon when cold enough to handle and set aside.

For the mushrooms

  1. Meanwhile, heat the remaining 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a small skillet over medium-high heat. Add half of the minced red onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until it begins to soften and brown, about 2 to 3 minutes.

  2. Add the mushrooms and garlic and cook until the mushrooms release their liquid and then begin to brown, 4 to 5 minutes. Stir in the oregano, season with salt and pepper and remove from the heat.

For the salad

  1. Arrange the chopped lettuce on a large dish. Sprinkle the ingredients on top, including the potatoes, bacon, mushrooms, remaining raw onion, eggs and feta. Season with salt and pepper. Shake vinaigrette vigorously to emulsify, drizzle on top and serve.
