Bibb Lettuce with Fresh Chive Vinaigrette
Makes about 4 servings
Lemon and chives complement one another. Usher in spring with this herb-filled dressing served on Bibb lettuce. Since chives grow out my backdoor I like to harvest them with a pair of kitchen shears. I also recommend slicing the chives with kitchen shears and not a knife because the scissors don’t smash the hollow chives but instead create a tidy crosswise cut.
2 heads Bibb lettuce, cleaned
Juice of one lemon (about 2 tablespoons)
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1/4 cup snipped chives
1/3 cup olive oil
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
Whisk lemon juice, mustard, and sugar together in a bowl. Add chives and slowly whisk in oil. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Gently tear the lettuce and place in a large salad bowl. Toss with half of the dressing just before serving. Serve the extra dressing on the side.
