I like to combine honey and maple syrup, not because I have an incredible sweet tooth, but because I like the different types of sweetness they provide. Add a little vinegar and thyme and you’ve got a sweet-tart dressing in less than 5 minutes.
1. In a small bowl, whisk together the vinaigrette ingredients.
2. Arrange the lettuce on individual salad plates and spoon the dressing over the top just before serving.
Make it a meal kit: Wash and dry the lettuce. Whisk together the vinaigrette. Store each separately in sealable containers or plastic bags, the lettuce for up to 3 days in the refrigerator, the vinaigrette for up to 1 week. Finish as directed.
Morph it: Make a double batch of the vinaigrette and morph the extra into a marinade and dipping sauce for chicken, turkey, salmon, or pork tenderloin. Use half as a marinade and the other half as a dipping sauce after cooking the protein.
Nutritional information includes 1/4 teaspoon of added salt, and is based on using 6 cups of lettuce leaves.
