I head of butter lettuce
1/3 cup salted, roasted almonds, coarsely chopped
1 apple, Pink Lady (or something crisp and similar!) cut into matchsticks
2 cups Pea shoots, cut into bite-sized pieces
Shaved Pecorino, about 1/2 cup or more (any hard cheese would do!)
Buttermilk Tarragon Dressing
1/2 cup homemade mayo (see recipe)
1/4 cup sour cream- 14%
3/4 cup full-fat buttermilk
1 clove garlic, finely grated
1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
2 tbsp fresh tarragon, finely chopped
1/4 cup parsley, finely chopped
2 tbsp lemon juice
2 tbsp white wine vinegar
2 tsp SMAK DAB White Wine Herb Mustard
1 tsp SMAK DAB Hot Honey Jalapeno Mustard
Sea salt and pepper, to taste
Combine all ingredients in a bowl, and whisk together. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Allow mixture to sit in the fridge for a few hours for the flavours to meld together.
For assembly, tear the butter lettuce into bit sized pieces, and place in a bowl. Add the pea shoots, half of the apple matchsticks and almonds. Drizzle about 4-5 tbsp of the dressing, and lightly toss. Taste before adding more dressing. When the salad is dressed enough, sprinkle with remaining apple, almonds, and a generous amount of pecorino shavings. Serve immediately!
