Chef's Note

This is the version that gives the maximum truffle flavor. But to reduce the cost, or depending on what's available, you could make this salad with truffle shavings. If you don't have black truffle-flavored oil, macerate the truffle shavings in a good-quality neutral-flavored oil.

For outstanding flavor, place your fresh eggs and pieces of truffle in an airtight container in the refrigerator and leave overnight so that the eggs abosrb the truffle aroma.
