Ingredients

1 large head iceberg lettuce, outer layer removed and both ends trimmed

Vinaigrette:

2 tablespoons Dijon mustard

2 tablespoons champagne vinegar

Kosher salt

1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil

1 small bunch fresh tarragon, washed, dried, leaves chopped

Directions

  1. Put the head of lettuce on a flat surface and cut in half at the equator. Transfer the lettuce to a small tray and put it in the freezer. 
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the Dijon mustard, vinegar, and pinch of salt. Slowly whisk in the olive oil and then add the tarragon. Taste for seasoning and set aside.
