Live Butter Leaf Lettuce (Central Market, $3/plant) and Trader Joe'sSweet Onion & Bacon Vinaigrette ($3)

     
I am completely obsessed with these live Butter Leaf Lettuce plants that I get at Central Market ($3). This is my second plant. They are so easy to take care of! Just place in a shallow plate or bowl, and add 1 cup of water every 5 days. When you're ready to eat some salad, just harvest 2 large leaves per person, and you're set! They grow some new leaves, but usually you'll finish the plant off before it can completely regenerate.


My favorite salad right now? Butter leaf lettuce, fresh organic tomatoes, and Trader Joe's Sweet Onion & Bacon Vinaigrette. Yum!
