Chef's Corner | Butter Lettuce Salad
We are thrilled to share delicious recipes recommended by our top chefs. In preparation for Thanksgiving Westcana's Culinary Specialist, Neil Porter, shares a butter lettuce salad recipe.
Why It’s Healthy - Butter lettuce, including both Bibb and Boston varieties, has a soft, buttery texture and a slightly sweet flavour. It has a tightly folded head that is bright green on the outside, yellow on the inside, and is often sold with the roots attached to preserve freshness. The USDA indicates that butter lettuce is low in sodium, a good source of vitamin A (70 percent of your daily requirement), and has small amounts of iron and calcium (Source).
This salad will add a delicate touch to any fall celebration!
