Lobster & Veggies Salad

Special dressing: The Honeydrippers (turn player on)

Doesn’t this look like a Christmas salad? Yeeeeees, it does! It’s a bit expensive, but if we don’t do it for Xmas, when then?

When I was a kid I never ever dreamed of having this kind of lobster salad, nor Iberian acorn ham, nor caviar, nor all these gourmet foods… for me a special dish was a dip in my weekly fried egg. By the time I was a girl, doctors here didn’t think it was good having more than one egg per week and my mother just followed their advise. “Baby and Child care” from Dr. Spock which is a book I read while I was pregnant told american mothers that they could cook eggs for their kids at least 3 times a week!!!

Why didn’t my mother read that book???
We always want more, don’t we?

Yummy! I don’t think I will be making this one since my budget for Christmas is already a little bit too stretched out already. But I will add it to my list for next year :D

Looks delicious

I can see that you’re celebrating Christmas Eve a little early?

Your lobster salad is very elegant and you held back on sauces…let the lobster dominate!

Would you believe I’ve never cooked lobster before? I’m almost afraid, because it’s so expensive. I like it though. Who doesn’t?

Thank you all, yes it’s a bit expensive and a bit early, but it’s worthwile! I only used one lobster for this dish (all these Xmas dishes are tests to see which one I finally chose for my Xmas family lunch).
Emiline, cooking a lobster is the easiest, but you are right I also feel between afraid and sad.
