Butter Lettuce Salad

This Butter Lettuce Salad is light, fresh, herby, crunchy, and downright delicious! I like to serve it with my dairy free hemp seed dressing for an extra punch of herby flavor. Great as a light lunch or a starter or side for a heartier dinner.

  • 8 cups (10 oz) chopped butter lettuce
  • 1 apple sliced thinly
  • 4 radishes sliced thinly
  • 4 teaspoons nutritional yeast
  • 2 green onions sliced
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh dill
  • 1 recipe Hemp Seed Dressing
  • fresh cracked black pepper optional
  • squeeze of fresh lemon optional


  • If you don't plan on eating all 4 servings immediately, I suggest keeping all ingredients separate and plating just what you need.
  • For each serving, start with 2 cups of chopped butter lettuce, followed by ¼th of the apple slices, 1 sliced radish, 1 teaspoon nutritional yeast, ¼th of the sliced green onions, ½ tablespoon of fresh chopped parsley, and ½ tablespoon of fresh chopped dill.
  • Drizzle as much or as little of the dressing over the top as you like.
  • Finish with fresh cracked pepper and a squeeze of fresh lemon.


~ Keep all ingredients separate until ready to serve.
~ Slice the apples and radishes as thinly as possible so as not to weigh down or overwhelm the delicate butter lettuce.
~ Use fresh herbs!
~ I like to pair this salad with my herby Hemp Seed Dressing. Vegan Ranch Dressing or Lemon Vinaigrette would be delicious, too. Or use your favorite store-bought vegan dressing.

Keep the individual ingredients separate and store them in air-tight containers in the fridge. Wrap the lettuce in paper towels and store in a sealed plastic zip-top bag in the crisper drawer. It should keep for 4 to 5 days.
