Top Rated Butter Lettuce Recipes

Yeah, yeah, the classic ratio of oil and vinegar in dressing is one part vinegar/acid to three parts oil. I do equal parts oil and lemon juice. Truth is, if I was ever to open a restaurant it would be called, Lemon and Salt. I go heavy with both (I've been told I should have a T-shirt that says, "Needs Salt"), especially with this dressing and these ingredients.You're going to like this salad. It's easy, it has character, and the textures work — soft dressing matched to soft and thinly sliced vegetables. It's a classic summer salad, but one to use during winter to remind you what to look forward to.This is the time to go with canned olives — you want a muted olive flavor that won't overpower the delicate lettuce. Leave the olives whole so you can stick 'em on your fingers like you did as a kid.

Probably one of my favorite ways to serve salad is with some sort of fruit in it. When strawberries are in season, I slice them in half and toss them with crisp lettuce, creamy cheese and chicken or steak. The sweetness mixed with all of the other ingredients makes for a bowl of deliciousness. This Spicy Chicken & Strawberry Salad would make a great weeknight meal. Broil the chicken with our Smoky Honey Habanero rub and while it's cooking, toss some greens, strawberries, crumbled bleu cheese and dice avocado. Make a quick vinaigrette (recipe below) and top with sliced chicken and dinner is served.

BLT
One of my favorite things after Thanksgiving is making BLTs with the leftover turkey. I never stint on the good stuff. Along with generous slices of white meat, I use only the finest ingredients. For the bread, it’s got to be Bays English muffins, which are the perfect size, shape, consistency, and flavor to complement the filling. There’s applewood-smoked bacon, which adds crunch and smoky-sweet savor. Moisture is always essential in a good sandwich, and it comes here from generous dollops of my favorite store-brand mayonnaise (Hellmann’s east of the Rockies, Best Foods west of the Rockies); sweet, juicy slices of vine-ripened tomato; and a tender-crisp leaf of butter lettuce.The directions here yield one sandwich, but just multiply it for a crowd. It’s that easy, and that delicious!For more turkey talk, visit The Daily Meal's Ultimate Guide to Thanksgiving!
