Zestful Kitchen's House Salad! This simple butter lettuce salad recipe is bright, delicate and perfect served alongside a simple piece of fish, pasta or soup.


  • 1 head bibb lettuce, torn into bite-sized pieces
  • 1 mini cucumber, thinly sliced
  • 1 scallion, dark greens only, sliced
  • ½ cup yellow cherry tomatoes, sliced (such as sungolds)
  • ¼ cup chopped parsley
  • 2 tablespoons chopped dill
  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons white balsamic vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 small clove garlic, grated
  • Kosher salt and cracked black pepper


  • For the salad, combine lettuce, cucumber, scallion greens, tomatoes, parsley and dill in a large serving bowl.
  • For the vinaigrette, whisk together oil, vinegar, Dijon, garlic and ¼ teaspoon kosher salt in a small measuring cup.
  • Drizzle vinaigrette over salad and toss to combine; season with salt and pepper to taste. Serve immediately.


The vinaigrette can be made up to 1 week ahead of time. Store in the refrigerator in a glass container. Allow the vinaigrette to come to room temperature before shaking well and using.
Feel free to use any fresh herbs you like—fresh chives, basil and cilantro are all great options.
