Ingredients

For the salad:

2 small to medium heads Boston lettuce, discard any wilted leaves

1 Hass avocado, pitted

1 large bunch scallions, thinly sliced

Leaves from 1 bunch cilantro, finely chopped

For the dressing:

2 limes, juiced

1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon sugar

About 20 grinds fresh black pepper

1 tablespoon whole-grain mustard

Directions

  1. Pull the lettuce leaves from the head, rinse gently under cold water, and lay out on clean towels to dry. Use a spoon to remove the flesh in 1 piece from each half of the avocado. Thinly slice the avocado flesh into thin wedges.
  2. Whisk together all the dressing ingredients.
  3. Arrange the lettuce leaves on a plate and top with the avocado wedges, scallion, and cilantro. Finish with a healthy drizzling of the dressing.
