Bibb Lettuce Salad with House Vinaigrette
4 heads of Bibb lettuce
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 medium shallot, finely chopped
1/4 cup minced fresh chives
1/4 cup chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
2 Tablespoons chopped fresh chervil (optional)
1/2 cup House Vinaigrette
1 Tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
Carefully remove the core from each head of lettuce and separate the leaves, but keep each head of lettuce together (leaves will be reassembled); discard any tough outer leaves. Wash and spin-dry the leaves.
Place the leaves from one head of lettuce in a large bowl. Sprinkle with a pinch of salt and freshly ground black pepper, one-fourth of the shallots, 1 tablespoon each of the chives, parsley, and chervil if using. Then toss gently with 2 tablespoons of the vinaigrette and 1 teaspoon of the lemon juice. Arrange the outer leaves as a base on the plate and rebuild each head of lettuce, ending with the smallest, most tender leaves. Repeat with the remaining heads of lettuce. Enjoy!
