Spring Herb Salad

By Amy Maltzan

3 handfuls tender lettuce or salad greens

2 handfuls of mixed spring herb leaves: any combination of parsley, chervil, dill, fennel fronds, mint, etc.

1 scallion, thinly sliced 6 tablespoons olive oil

Juice of 1 lemon

1 teaspoon Dijon mustard

Salt and pepper, to taste

In the bottom of a large salad bowl, whisk together the lemon juice, mustard, salt and pepper. Whisking all the while, drizzle in the olive oil until emulsified.

Add the greens, scallion and herbs to the bowl. Gently toss to coat. Taste, and add more salt or pepper if needed.

Note: Thinly sliced salad turnips, radishes, and/or sweet peas make a lovely addition to the salad.
