Butter Lettuce with Apples and Walnuts

Quick Salad Recipe

The flavors are deliciously complementary in this minimalist salad. Try using a mixture of lettuces or a commercial salad mix for a variation in flavor.


Makes 6 to 8 servings

1 bunch butter lettuce (Boston or Bibb)

1 large tart green apple

1/4 cup coarsely chopped walnuts

3–4 tablespoons seasoned rice vinegar


Wash and dry lettuce and tear into bite-size pieces. Core and dice apple.

In a salad bowl, combine lettuce, apple, and walnuts. Pour vinegar over salad and toss gently.

    • Hello Ashley,

      We can never have enough green salad ! I use some organic greens every single day to make sure I am getting chlorophyll in my diet!
