Avocado, Butter Lettuce & Pickled Onion Vinaigrette

A very simple salad— butter lettuce and creamy avocado slices in a bright and pretty quick-pickle onion vinaigrette.

The vinaigrette is also great on avocado toast.


For the salad:

1 handful of butter lettuce per person

1/2 an avocado per person

For the vinaigrette:

1/2 a small red onion 1 + 1/2 teaspoons salt

1  Tablespoons + 1 teaspoon sherry vinegar or lemon juice

3 Tablespoons olive oil + more for drizzling

Slice your onions carefully on a mandolin or dice them by hand.

(The shape is really up to you. I like a "lazy" dice- nothing too precise but more bite sized and confetti like- for this, but thinly sliced is nice too.)

Sprinkle the sliced onions with 1 + 1/2 teaspoons of salt and rub the salt into the onions.

Let the onions rest for 10 minutes.
