A French classic, sauce gribiche combines hard-boiled egg, sharp mustard, cornichons (or miniature pickles) and classic herbs like tarragon—resulting in a thick, cool condiment perfect for seafood. We’re pairing our creamy sauce gribiche with crispy-skinned salmon, served over gourmet mashed potatoes and topped with a quick braise of seasonal vegetables. (Chefs, you may receive green beans or purple beans, which turn green when cooked!)

Pick the tarragon leaves off the stems; discard the stems and roughly chop. Snap off and discard the bean stems; cut into 2-inch pieces. Halve the tomatoes.
