Chop or shread the cooked lobster meat and refrigerate until dressing has

vinegar, mustard, tomato paste, salt and pepper and cayenne. Gradually add
the oil, beating vigorously with a wire whisk. Juice the lemon. Beat in the
lemon juice, tarragon and cognac. Add lobster and tomatoes to the dressing

refrigerated for an hour or so. Prepare the salad: When ready to serve,
stack crisped romaine lettuce leaves and slice them into fine shreads.
Place shreads on individual salad plates. Top with lobster dressing and
serve immediately. (You may substitute crabmeat or shrimp for the lobster.)
