Crème fraîche gives this salad a mild tanginess that marries beautifully with butter lettuce’s delicate flavor.
It’s tangy and light, and a good match alongside something rich, but like other reviewers mentioned it needs something else to be more interesting. Avocado would be good. Something sweet like strawberries or raspberries, or dried cranberries. And something for crunch if you want texture, like almonds. But keep it delicate overall.
This salad has become a favorite in our household - we really love the poppy seed dressing. We agree that it needs a little something added to it. Our favorite combination is to add toasted slivered almonds, halved grapes, and chunks of avocado. It's fantastic with these flavors in it.
