Mache Lettuce Salad with Avocado Zest OIl Vinaigrette

Mache Salad with Avocado Oil Vinaigrette

Printable Recipe

Prep time: 5 minutes


2-4 handfuls of mache lettuce (or your favorite)

Sweet red pepper, cut into julienne strips
Cucumber, thinly sliced
¼ cup avocado zest oil
2-3 tbsp balsamic apple cider vinegar ( start with 2 tbsp and add more to your taste)
1 tsp Dijon mustard
Drizzle of honey (again, to your taste)

1. Combine all the dressing ingredients in a small bowl. Taste for seasoning – I like to use a lettuce leaf to do the tasting. This makes sure the vinaigrette matches the flavor of the lettuce.

2. Place the salad greens, red pepper & cucumber in a large bowl, and toss with vinaigrette. Taste for seasoning. Just add enough vinaigrette to be able to taste it, not make the salad soupy.
