Butter Lettuce Salad

Ingredients

Directions

  1. For dressing, on a cutting board finely chop garlic. Sprinkle with a pinch of salt and rub with side of a knife to form a paste. Transfer paste to a small glass bowl. Mix in 1/2 teaspoon salt and the lemon juice; let stand for 10 minutes. Whisk in creme fraiche and whipping cream. Season to taste with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
  2. Place green beans in a large pan of rapidly boiling, lightly salted water. Cook, uncovered, for 5 to 7 minutes or until just tender. Drain beans and place in bowl of lightly salted ice water to chill quickly. Let sit for 3 to 5 minutes or until cold; drain.
  3. Arrange lettuce, green beans, and cucumbers on a platter. Season with salt and black pepper. Lightly toss with dressing and chives. Pass additional dressing.
