I knew I wanted to treat this with respect and kindness, cause Butter Lettuce is soft and gentle. I wanted something that high-lighted the taste, but didn't overpower it.
Just three ingredients, all of which you can probably pronounce. Nothing fancy here.
Heavy cream or whipping cream
Rice Wine Vinegar or another mild flavoured vinegar.
To dress one salad
Recipe: Cream Dressing
3 tablespoons Heavy Cream
1/2 tsp. Sugar
2 tsp. Rice Wine Vinegar
2 tsp.Gravenstein Apple White Balsamic Vinegar
Whisk together the cream, sugar and vinegar until slightly thickened. Taste and add a touch more vinegar or sugar if you like. There is this chemical reaction that happens when you add vinegar or acid to cream. It thickens it, sometimes a lot. Just wanted you to know that. Cause this will get lovely and thick.
I know I could have added some sliced apple to my salad and in fact I did with the second salad I made.
I would have licked the bowl when I was finished, but that would have been downright rude.
Unless of course no one was watching...
