Boston Lettuce with Shaved Parmesan

Source: Everyday Food, September 2005


  • 2 tablespoons red-wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 1 1/2 pounds (4 heads) Boston lettuce, torn into pieces
  • 1 cup shaved (2 ounces) Parmesan cheese


  1. In a small bowl or jar, whisk or shake vinegar, mustard, and oil until combined and thickened; season with salt and pepper. (Dressing can be made ahead and refrigerated, covered, until ready to serve.)

  2. In a large bowl, combine lettuce with dressing and 3/4 cup cheese; toss gently to coat. Divide among plates, and top with remaining 1/4 cup cheese. Serve immediately.

Cook's Notes

Use a sturdy vegetable peeler (a wide harp-shape one works best) to shave the Parmesan into long pieces.
