From the Test Kitchen

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!)

Cook & peel the egg:
1 Cook & peel the egg:

Heat a medium pot of salted water to boiling on high. Once boiling, add the egg and cook for exactly 10 minutes. Drain thoroughly; rinse under cold water for 30 seconds to 1 minute to stop the cooking process. Refill the pot with salted water and heat to boiling on high. When cool enough to handle, carefully peel the cooked egg; transfer to a medium bowl.

Prepare the ingredients:
2 Prepare the ingredients:

While the egg cooks, wash and dry the fresh produce. Peel the shallot and mince to get 2 tablespoons; place in a bowl with the vinegar. Large dice the potatoes. 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. Peel and mince the garlic; smash with the side of your knife until it resembles a paste (or use a zester). Small dice the cornichons.
