Maché + frisée

Maché + frisée are tender, delicate greens that were just made for each other—I love them combined in a simple salad. Combined together, their unique textures pair especially well with avocado and citrus, such as grapefruit or orange (shown here). Maché is also called lambs lettuce, and frisée is from the chicory and escarole family, though not nearly as bitter. Both are somewhat difficult to find where I live, but I have my sources, and I can find them year round. For the dressing, I mix minced shallots, honey, an orange juice reduction, champagne vinegar, orange olive oil, and salt and pepper. Good stuff!
