When you need a side salad that feels a bit fresher than mixed greens and balsamic, turn to this sophisticated pairing: Fancy frisée has a slightly bitter taste and crisp, curly leaves. Pair it with our tangy vinaigrette, which stars Dijon mustard, for an easy side dish that will impress anyone at your table.


  • ¼ cup white-wine vinegar

  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard

  • Coarse salt and ground pepper

  • ½ cup olive oil

  • 1 pound frisee, trimmed and roughly torn

  • 1 bunch fresh chives, cut into 1-inch lengths


  1. In a blender (or screw-top jar), combine vinegar and mustard. Season with salt and pepper, and blend well to combine. Add oil, and blend until combined and thickened.

  2. Place frisée and chives in a large serving bowl; toss with vinaigrette, and serve.

Cook's Notes

The sturdy heads of frisée will keep, bagged, for up to 5 days in the refrigerator.
