Truffle dressing



1.For truffle dressing, combine vinegar, wine and truffle in a bowl and whisk to combine. Add olive oil in a steady stream, whisking until incorporated. Season to taste with sea salt and freshly ground white pepper.
2.For salad, divide ingredients between serving bowls, drizzle with truffle dressing and toss gently to combine. Serve immediately.

Note Curly endive and lamb’s lettuce are available from specialty greengrocers. Agrodolce-style cabernet sauvignon vinegar is available from Simon Johnson and The Essential Ingredient. The nearest substitute is a good-quality aged red wine vinegar.

Drink Suggestion: Bottle-aged Hunter semillon. Drink suggestion by Max Allen
