Chapons are slices of French bread (flavoured liberally with garlic, a good olive oil and pepper) which are tossed with a salad of mixed greens to add a distinct garlic flavour. Much better than merely smearing the serving bowl with garlic!

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
selection salad greens (lettuce, curly endive, spinach, spring onions, parsley, watercress)
1 cucumber
2 garlic cloves, crushed
3-4 tablespoons olive oil
freshly ground black pepper
6 slices french bread
Vinaigrette dressing

Method

  1. Rinse, dry and chill salad greens. Tear into bite-size pieces.
  2. Peel cucumber leaving a little green colour on the flesh. Cut in half lengthways and scoop out seeds with a spoon. Cut into 5 cm lengths.
  3. Put garlic in a small bowl with olive oil and a good grinding of black pepper. Mix well, then brush on slices of French bread.
  4. Add to bowl with salad greens and cucumber, and just before serving toss with a little vinaigrette dressing.
