I love a really cold salad and this takes it to the extreme. My father would always serve all the greens ice cold and I really feel this recipe keeps that tradition alive!

Ingredients

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

  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard

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. 

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.
