From the Test Kitchen

This French-inspired recipe highlights sauce gribiche—a traditional cold egg sauce made with hard-boiled eggs, mustard, and more—that gives our smoky-spiced cod a sophisticated, flavorful lift. We’re serving it over a bed of hearty lentils and vegetables tossed with a delightful combo of sweet balsamic vinegar and some more of the piquant mustard.
