Lamb’s lettuce with pomegranate vinaigrette

Dieser Beitrag ist auch verfügbar auf: Deutsch

Do you know that pleasant feeling when a fresh and crisp lamb’s lettuce decorates your plate? I find that a beautiful salad as a side dish only gives the dish its polish. Especially because I always feel like I’m doing my body some good with a salad as a side dish. My recipe for simple lamb’s lettuce with pomegranate vinaigrette is especially suitable to decorate a nice pasta or meat dish.

Lamb’s lettuce is one of the classic winter salads, because lamb’s lettuce is in season in winter. It probably originates from Italy, but is also grown in Germany, especially in Baden Württemberg, North Rhine-Westphalia and Rhineland-Palatinate. It is prepared by washing it under cold water and then removing coarse roots. With only 21 calories per 100 grams, lamb’s lettuce is very healthy.

My favorite way to eat lamb’s lettuce is with a simple vinaigrette. Here, the perfect combination of sweet and sour flavors is key. That’s why I always use a 3:1 ratio of oil to vinegar for my vinaigrette, add some pepper and salt, and sweeten it with a little sugar. The fruity-fresh pomegranate seeds and the shallots round out this vinaigrette.
