Method

A lettuce salad is strewn with thin strips of truffles, and dressed with a dressing composed of the pounded yolks of 1 or 2 eggs, to which oil and vinegar are added gradually, as in the making of mayonnaise, 2 or 3 anchovies, also pounded in a mortar, and a little French mustard. A famous version of this salad is popular in the hilly districts around Turin and is called โ€œla insalata delle 24 oreโ€ (the salad of the 24 hours). It is made in the same way, but decorated with edible and gaily coloured flowers, like the nasturtium.
