My Usual Lunch in Paris

Oh I love my lunch in Paris. This place is just down the street from one of the more popular show spaces.
The salad is herbed goat-cheese on toast with aged “country ham”, greens in a mustard vinaigrette and the real topper is a few walnuts sprinkled on top. Give me a glass (or two) of white wine and I’m good to go for the rest of the day.

    “Aged country ham” That looks like Prosciutto to me.

    delicious – as appertising as the fashions – have you thought of a career in food styling as well – the shot looks straight out of a gourmet magazine

    The French don’t get fat. Looks delicious – a blend of different tastes and textures.

    I tend to go for sandwiches, but that looks really good! French salads are the best I’ve ever had. I’ll keep my eye out for it. :)

    Looks beautiful and quite healthy, Sart. Some greens, vegetables, some protein, some dairy…not too much processing, mostly fresh, etc. If we could just gather enough Americans to adopt such healthy meals, in the long run it would contribute a great deal to our country’s health care issues. – JCH

    My favorite Parisian meal has always been a standard tuna niçoise (with a dijon reduction) and a baguette, however the next time I pass through France I’ll certainly try yours!

    Sits in dorm room. Cries about dorm food. Oh Sart. Savour it for me.

    i’m guessing sart called it “country ham” in quotes because it was probably called “jambon de pays” on the menu, hence his literal translation… either way though, that salad looks delicious. :-)

    Yum! What a beautiful, savory lunch. Finish with an expresso and I would call that a perfect meal.

    you could have this type of sald each sunday in my home…
    It called in France : la salade auvergnate, you could add some fe gras with a glass of fresh Bourgogne aligoté, and for dessert a fig pie, oh my godness, it’s incredible….
