Green salad with vinaigrette
"Our seven-year-old, Arwen, has been making this vinaigrette since she was five - she tastes it as she goes," says Levy Redzepi. "It's fresh and acidic and as good as the leaves. Frillice lettuce is crunchy but it's thin so it's like a perfect mix of cos and iceberg."


  • 1 lettuce, leaves separated (I prefer frillice or cos)
  • 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 tsp of wholegrain mustard
  • 6 tbsp olive oil


  • 1
    Rinse the lettuce and put it in a bowl with very cold water to give a little extra crispness.
  • 2
    Meanwhile, mix balsamic vinegar and the mustards in a small bowl to combine, then while stirring slowly add the olive oil. Season to taste.
  • 3
    Drain lettuce well, drizzle with vinaigrette to taste, toss to combine and serve.
