Butter Lettuce Salad with Dijon Vinaigrette

Butter Lettuce Salad with Dijon Vinaigrette

Author note: Use as much or little vinaigrette as desired. I prefer a sopping wet salad with this vinaigrette because it’s so good. Sometimes I will add thinly sliced radishes and shallots, but most of the time I prefer just the lettuce and cucumbers. Butter lettuce is also referred to as Boston Lettuce of Bibb Lettuce.

1 head butter lettuce salad

1-2 hothouse cucumbers, peeled

dijon vinaigrette (see recipe below)

  1. Rinse the lettuce. With a knife, gently chop into bite sized pieces. Place in a large bowl.
  2. With a vegetable peeler, peel the cucumber into thin strips. Then, cut the strips into two inch pieces. Place the cumber pieces into the salad bowl.
  3. Pour the Dijon vinaigrette over the salad. Toss and serve immediately.
