“I was inspired by fond memories of a salad I ate on a first ‘fancy seafood restaurant’ date with my boyfriend…now husband…Bill when I was just 18. From the very first taste, I was in heaven,” says Lea. “Little did I know then that it had a lot to do with the cream and how it perfectly coated the lettuce leaves. I added a twist to it by including a zesty lemon flavor.”

1 teaspoon salt
Fresh ground pepper to taste

Directions:
(1) In a small bowl, whisk together shallot, champagne vinegar, sugar, lemon zest, lemon juice, salt, and pepper in a bowl.
