Ingredients

  • 2

    small heads of butter lettuce separated into leaves

  • 2

    tbsp of minced fresh tarragon

  • 1

    tbsp minced fresh chives

  • 1

    tbsp red wine vinegar

  • 1

    tbsp Dijon mustard

  • salt

  • ¼

    cup olive oil

Directions

1. Use only the most tender leaves, tear the large leaves into pieces and arrange in a salad bowl. Sprinkle tarragon and chives onto leaves. 2. In a small bowl, stir together vinegar, mustard and salt to taste, until well mixed. Add oil and whisk vigorously until combined. Pour dressing over lettuce, toss and serve. This salad is a nice side dish to fish or meat. If served with fish, substitute lemon juice for the vinegar. Slices of hardboiled eggs are an attractive garnish. Minced basil and/or Italian parsley can be added to the dressing as well.
