This version of the classic Salade Verte has been on the menu at Le Pichet and Cafe Presse every day that we have been open.
The salade verte is the ultimate expression of simple food, simply prepared. Because there are no tricks or gimmicks to hid mistakes, the quality of every ingredient is paramount. We use organic Hazelnuts from Holmquist Hazelnuts, who are located near Blaine Washington. They grow the Duchilly hazelnut, a skinless variety with great flavor and texture. For Bibb lettuce, our produce supplier, Frank’s Quality Produce, uses various organic growers to maintain a year round supply.
The other important element is making sure that the lettuce is absolutely fresh, cold and crispy. We tear our lettuce to order to avoid wilting or browning. And this salad should be served as soon as it is dressed.
