To make the Herbed Fromage Blanc: In a medium bowl, whisk together the fromage blanc, herbs, shallot, olive oil, and vinegar. Season with salt and pepper. Store in an airtight container, refrigerated, up to 2 hours before serving. To make the Potato Cakes: Heat oven to 400 degrees. Spread an even 1/2-inch-thick layer of coarse salt in the bottom of an ovenproof skillet large enough to hold the potatoes. Arrange potatoes in the skillet. Place skillet in the oven, and bake 1 hour 10 minutes; the potatoes should give easily when squeezed. Remove potatoes from the skillet, and let cool 5 minutes. While the potatoes are cooling, arrange six double layers of foil (each about 4-inches square) on a baking sheet. Butter six 3- by 3/4-inch round ring molds; place one on each square of foil. To get the best texture from the potatoes, you must work with them while theyre hot. Peel the potatoes, and place in a wooden bowl. Add 4 tablespoons butter, and crush the potatoes; season with salt and pepper. Spoon the potato mixture into the molds, mounding them a little on the tops. Place a large saute pan over medium heat. Add the remaining tablespoon butter, and cook until hot. Lifting the foil squares, transfer potato cakes to pan, and invert cakes into hot butter. Cook cakes on both sides just until golden, about 3 to 5 minutes per side. Return the cooked cakes to baking sheet to keep warm. To make the Chicken Livers: Rinse the chicken livers under cold running water, and pat them dry between paper towels. Season with salt and pepper. Melt 1 tablespoon butter in a saute pan over high heat. When the butter is hot, add livers. Cook 2 minutes on one side. Turn over, and immediately add the shallot; cook 2 minutes more. Add vinegar, and boil 1 minute. Remove pan from heat. Reduce heat to low, and return pan to heat with remaining 2 tablespoons butter. To assemble the Salad: Place salad greens in a large bowl, and season with salt and pepper. Dress with a little olive oil and vinegar. For each serving, place a spoonful of fromage blanc on top of a hot, crisp potato cake, and adorn the fromage blanc with the chicken livers. Drizzle the chicken livers with the pan sauce, and put a small mound of salad on the other side. Serve. Serves 6. Recipe Source: Martha Stewart Living -
