Red Lettuce Salad


Late of "Saturday Night Live," Ana Gasteyer joined Martha to make a red lettuce salad with roasted shallot vinaigrette.


  • 2 blood or navel oranges

  • 1 pound mixed lettuces, such as red leaf, red butter, lola rosa, red oak, or treviso, washed, dried, and torn into bite-size pieces

  • ½ head radicchio, thinly sliced crosswise

  • Roasted Shallot Vinaigrette

  • ½ cup ricotta salata cheese, crumbled


  1. Using a paring knife, remove peel, pith, and outer membranes from oranges. Carefully cut each segment away from membranes, collecting juice and segments in a bowl. Squeeze any remaining juice from membranes before discarding. Drain segments, and set aside, reserving juice for another use.

  2. In a large bowl, combine lettuces and radicchio; toss with vinaigrette. Transfer to a serving platter, top with reserved orange segments, and sprinkle with cheese. Serve immediately.
