The best dressing you can drizzle over a butter lettuce salad is a basic lemon juice vinaigrette. This dressing highlights the delicate flavor of butter lettuce without overpowering it.
- 1 cup high-quality extra-virgin olive oil
- 1/3 cup lemon juice
- 1/2 teaspoon minced shallot
- 1 teaspoon grainy mustard
- 1/2 teaspoon mild-flavored honey
- 1/2 teaspoon high-grade salt
- pinch of black pepper
