Posted: Updated:
NORWALK -

Chef Justin, from The 'Port Restaurant in Westport, shares how to make a restaurant quality salad.

Recipe:

Using the dressing provided.
Shop for crisp spot free lettuce.
If washing the lettuce it's important to make sure the leaves are dry. Wet lettuce prevents the
dressing from sticking to the lettuce.
Salad additions are up to your preference. Seasonal items will be the best choice in freshness
and cost.

Lettuces.

Mild

Mesclun
Butter
Iceberg
Baby romaine

More intense

Spinach
Arugula
Mizuna
Mache
