Instructions
 

  • Whisk together the oil and balsamic; lightly season with salt and pepper. Place the lettuce in a large bowl and add the oil mixture. Toss, toss, toss until all leaves are well, but lightly, coated. Divide among individual plates and serve immediately.

Notes

*Chef’s note: there may not seem like enough of the oil and balsamic mixture to sufficiently coat all the leaves, but in this type of salad, the leaves are meant to be very lightly dressed. If you would like to add more, start with just an extra 1/2 tsp oil and a 1/4 tsp balsamic. Tossing the lettuce is key to coating all the leaves and allowing the oil & balsamic to do their magic.
