Yield 4 servings

This layered apple, radish, cheddar cheese and Marcona almond salad was inspired by a similar salad served at Mesa Restaurant in Costa Mesa, California.

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Rinse, dry and chill butter lettuce leaves. It is best if the lettuce is chilled several hours or even a day in advance so lettuce is crisp and dry.
  2. Make the dressing by putting mustard and vinegar in a small bowl and whisking in the walnut oil. Season with salt and pepper. Set aside.
  3. Fill a small bowl with water and add lemon juice. Slice the apples using the mandolin, or a sharp knife if you are skilled. Put the apples in the lemon water for a few minutes then drain and dry. Slice the radishes using the mandolin.
  4. Build 4 individual salads a layer at a time, starting by placing three butter lettuce leaves on each plate. Drizzle a little dressing on each lettuce bed and then layer the apples, radishes and cheese on top of the lettuce bed, drizzling a little bit of dressing on each layer.
  5. Garnish with tarragon, chives and Marcona almonds.
