May 25, 2012 Published by Dina Leave your thoughts


Ingredients:


Red leaf lettuce
Romaine lettuce, inner leaves only
Pea shoots
Watercress
Sorrel
Mint
Flat leaf parsley
Cilantro
Fresh dill
Basil
Chives
Radishes

Shaved parmesan


Directions:


Gather a handful of each of the ingredients and toss gently in a bowl. Drizzle lightly with a good vinaigrette (see champagne vinaigrette below) and toss to coat the leaves but not drench them in the dressing.

Sprinkle with a special salt (Fleur de Sel, Maldon salt, Sicilian Sea Salt etc.) and a twist or two of freshly ground pepper.

A few shavings of Parmigiano Reggiano or an excellent blue cheese will enhance the flavours and add complexity to this simple salad. Don’t over complicate it though, the point here is to make the fresh herb flavours shine.

Enjoy.
