it was time to cut some lettuce leaves from my deck garden. the single lettuce leaves were tender and delicious. having grown to three to four inches in length, i simply cut them and washed and dried in a salad spinner. the lettuce flavor is so mild and sweet, also being a great source of Vitamin A.
growing home lettuce in pots is so easy. no worries about rabbits munching them in the evening. to serve with this lettuce, i tried making a cherry vinaigrette. i used a sample of fresh fruit vinegar from mange. the sample was provided for me to taste and review for the blog. the fruit vinegars are made in Vermont, and are shelf stable vinegars. they are perfect for basting, cooking, and even for cocktails.
using my basic recipe for vinaigrette, i mixed three parts of salad oil to one part of the cherry vinaigrette. i also added a pinch of salt, and 1/2 teaspoon of sugar. the dressing on the lettuce leaves was delicious.
