    I made this salad with the vinaigrette on Saturday. It was fresh and fabulous. I took your advice and used the three different types of lettuce. The variety was wonderful. I dried the lettuces very well as suggested. The vinaigrette was tasty and yummy and was a big hit with the rest of the dinner party. I may have used a bit more of the dijon mustard but it was excellent.
    Many thanks for this recipe. Sarah, I enjoy my daily videos so much. I look forward to them each and every morning.
