The one about salade aux fines herbes and the veggie thief
Friday, September 4, 2009
This was supposed to be a simple post about how to make salade aux fines herbes, the basic French salad with mixed herb dressing.
It really is simple, just a basic vinaigrette with a mix of chopped parsley, chervil, chives, and tarragon – about equal amount except for a tiny bit less of the pungent tarragon.
So I was just setting up a shot of the salad greens and herbs I just picked from the garden.
Then Miss Ella got a little interested and came to investigate.
Ok, perhaps a tad more than just a little interested.
And then….off she goes….
The little thief!
…..making a run for it!
…nom nom nom…my name is Ella and I'm a vegetarian…nom nom
Happy Ella, contemplating stealing another leaf of lettuce I'm sure.
Oh, right, and how exactly does one make a salade aux fines herbes? I guess that story can wait for another day.
