Simple Butter Lettuce Salad
2 heads butter lettuce, roughly chopped
1 cup castelvetrano olives, pitted, cut in half
1/2 cup panko
2 tbsp butter (or olive oil)
1/4 cup chives, minced
2 oz manchego cheese, grated
freshly ground pepper
Apple Cider Vinaigrette
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar (unfiltered)
2 tbsp honey
2 tbsp olive oil
In a small bowl whisk together ingredients for the dressing, set aside.
In a small skillet set over medium heat, melt butter and add panko. Stir often until panko is golden brown in colour.
Arrange butter lettuce on a large platter, shave manchego over lettuce and add olives, pepper, panko and chives. Drizzle with dressing right before serving and enjoy.
** If you dress this salad too soon, the panko will get soggy. We recommend saving the panko until after it is dressed and sprinkle it on right before serving.
