Baby lettuce hearts with pistachio dressing and parmesan

Baby lettuce wedges make great finger food; they're easy to pick up, and go with just about any dressing or dip. We've opted for a tasty nutty dressing, but an anchoïade would also be delicious.

You'll need

5 baby gem lettuces, quartered Finely grated parmesan, to serve   Pistachio dressing 150 gm pistachio nuts 150 ml olive oil Juice of 1 lemon 1 small garlic clove, crushed 1 tbsp hulled tahini


  • 01
  • For pistachio dressing, process ingredients in a blender until smooth and season generously to taste.
  • 02
  • Arrange lettuce wedges on a platter, spoon pistachio dressing on top, scatter with parmesan and serve.
