Recipes FAQ:

  • Q: Can I use a different type of lettuce for this salad?
  • A: Absolutely! This recipe would work well with any type of lettuce, but we recommend using a tender, delicate lettuce like butter lettuce for the best flavor.

  • Q: Can I make the dressing ahead of time?
  • A: Yes! The dressing can be made up to a week in advance and stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Just give it a good shake before using.

  • Q: Can I add other ingredients to this salad?
  • A: Of course! This recipe is very versatile and would work well with a variety of ingredients. Some suggestions include cherry tomatoes, sliced almonds, or crumbled feta cheese.

  • Q: Can I use a different type of vinegar for the dressing?
  • A: Yes! White wine vinegar adds a nice tangy flavor to the dressing, but you could also use red wine vinegar or apple cider vinegar if you prefer.

  • Q: Can I make this salad ahead of time?
  • A: Yes, but we recommend waiting to dress the salad until just before serving to prevent the lettuce from getting soggy. You can prepare the lettuce and dressing separately and then combine them right before serving.

  • Q: Is this salad healthy?
  • A: Yes! Butter lettuce is a good source of vitamin A and potassium, and the dressing is made with heart-healthy olive oil and Dijon mustard.

Recipes Tips:

If you're looking to add some extra protein to this salad, try adding some grilled chicken or shrimp on top. You could also add some sliced avocado or a hard-boiled egg for a filling and nutritious meal.

When washing butter lettuce, be sure to dry it thoroughly to prevent the leaves from getting soggy. A salad spinner is a great tool for this, but you can also blot the leaves dry with a clean towel.

If you're not a fan of Dijon mustard, you can use a different type of mustard in the dressing. Whole grain mustard or spicy brown mustard would both work well.
