Blooming Bibb Lettuce Salad

  • ACTIVE: 30 MIN
  • FAST

Chunks of fresh tomato in a vinaigrette add a little heft to a lettuce salad, like this beautifully arranged one from chef Scott Conant.

  1. 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  2. 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  3. 1 tablespoon finely chopped oregano
  4. 3/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  5. 4 plum tomatoes—peeled, seeded and finely diced
  6. Salt
  7. Freshly ground pepper
  8. 4 heads Bibb lettuce, separated into leaves
  1. In a bowl, whisk the balsamic vinegar, red wine vinegar and oregano. Gradually whisk in the olive oil. Stir in the tomatoes and season with salt and pepper; let stand for 30 minutes.
  2. Stack the lettuce leaves on 4 plates to form a flower shape, using the largest leaves on the bottom and the smallest on top. Drizzle with the dressing, distributing the tomatoes among the stacked leaves.
