Yield: Serves six.
Source: Recipe by Georgeanne Brennan
Butter lettuce means either Bibb or Boston, both of which have tender, soft leaves with a sweet flavor. Don’t dress this salad until just before you serve it.
9 Tbs. extra-virgin olive oil
3 Tbs. fresh lemon juice
1 tsp. salt
3/4 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
1 large shallot, coarsely chopped
1-1/2 cups coarsely chopped flat parsley leaves
1 large bunch watercress, stems removed
1 large or two small heads butter lettuce, small leaves left whole, larger ones torn into pieces
In the bottom of a salad bowl, combine the olive oil, lemon juice, salt, pepper, and shallot, mixing well with a whisk or a fork. Add the parsley, watercress, and butter lettuce and turn gently until everything is well coated with dressing. Serve immediately.
