Butter Leaf Salad with Cerignola Olives, Shaved Parmesan, and Roasted Tomato Vinaigrette
Such a long title for this simple yet delicious salad. I re-created this salad from my local favorite restaurant. I love the soft butter lettuce with the thinly sliced Italian olives and the sharp Parmesan cheese tossed together with the sweetened roasted tomato vinaigrette. The combination of flavors and textures is wonderful! My husband and I both love ordering this salad but it’s not always available so now I can have it at home whenever I like! My kids and my mother-in-law (who happened to be visiting) also really loved the salad and the vinaigrette.

This salad is truly mouth-watering, Pam!The vinaigrette is a perfect match!:)
I agree with mia it is mouth watering. I rarely use lettuce in a salad as my husband is not keen, he prefers spinach, rocket, chard etc but I am sure he would love this. Diane

I've been on a salad kick and I can't wait to try this!
Butter lettuce may well be my favorite. Wish you had included the tomato vinaigrette recipe because it all looks so good.
I just started putting parmesan in my salads, i love the bitter taste of cheese with my salad. I was looking for some new salad recipes for my new diet and landed here. Thanks for the recipe!
