Chef’s Tips:

  • No Bibb lettuce? Try Romaine instead! And make sure that both the lettuces are washed, dried, and ready to serve before you assemble the salad.
  • Use a vegetable peeler to shave the mozzarella into thin strips.
  • Garnish the salad with an extra slice of lemon or lime.
  • Be sure to pile the lettuce as high as you can when you put it on the plate. This will make it look airy and light.
