Delicious snails! It’s nice to see them appearing on menus here and there. However slowly.


  • a handful of dandelion leaves
  • a handful of mixed baby salad leaves
  • 50


Wash the leaves and spin them until very dizzy but dry. Put them in a salad bowl. Preheat the grill to high.

To make the vinaigrette, beat the lemon juice with the sugar and Dijon mustard in a bowl. Peel and finely chop the garlic and throw it in with salt and a twist of black pepper. Beat in the oil with a fork until creamy, then put the vinaigrette to one side.
