Wilted Butter Lettuce, Fresh Garden Peas and Beurre Blanc
Butter lettuce has such a delicate flavor that it's often mixed with other greens to give salads some more oomph. But there are ways to make its slightly sweet, buttery taste shine.
Why this dish isn't the same old:
No standard oil-and-vinegar treatment here: Chef Tyler Florence's sauce, made from white wine and shallots, elevates this salad to OMG level.
The supporting cast:
A cup of blanched fresh peas.
