Equipment

  • Salad Spinner

Ingredients

For the salad

  • 150 grams butter lettuce (1 small head of lettuce, approximately 5.3 ounces)
  • 250 grams strawberries (1 punnet plus a few extra to garnish, approximately 8.8 ounces)
  • 60 grams red onion, optional (half a red onion, approximately 2 ounces)
  • ¼ cup sunflower seeds, toasted

For the vinaigrette

  • cup olive oil
  • ¼ cup lime juice
  • 2 tbsps raspberry vinegar
  • 2 kaffir lime leaves
  • 1 tablespoon lime zest (approximately 2 limes)
  • Sliced strawberries and sliced limes to garnish.

Instructions

  • For this salad, we are going to start with the dressing to allow the flavours to develop for a much tastier salad. Add all the dressing ingredients to a glass jar and shake until emulsified.
  • Cut off the roots and core of your butter lettuce, then wash gently under cold running water. Then either gently pat the leaves dry with a towel or spin dry in a salad spinner. Gently tear the leaves into bite-sized pieces.
  • Wash your strawberries, hull them, then cut them in half.
  • Remove the papery skin from the onion, cut off the top and bottom, then dice finely. (The onion is optional and I did not add in this version).
  • Add all the ingredients to a mixing bowl, pour the dressing over the salad and season with salt and pepper, mix well, taste and adjust seasonings according to your taste.
  • Arrange in a salad platter and serve immediately, garnish with the extra strawberries and lime slices. Serve and enjoy.
