Tip the lardons and their cooking fat into the endives. Add the diced Comté, the chopped parsley and 5 tablespoons French dressing (vinaigrette).

Mix well and it's ready.

Remarks

If you don't have Comté, use Gruyère or another similar cheese instead.

It is not essential to include the bacon fat. This can be left out if you prefer, though the salad will have less flavour.

Don't worry if your bacon is unsmoked, though do try to use it to keep with the "Comtois" spirit.

Keeping:

Should be eaten the day it is made.
