Easy tomato and lamb’s lettuce salad
Lamb’s lettuce reputedly gets its name from the leaf’s resemblance to a lamb’s tongue. Whatever it looks like, from May to November, when it is in season, it makes a great alternative to your every day salad leaves, bringing with it a tangier taste than most. This salad goes particularly well with our cheesy-quichy-souffly recipe, but it could be used to bulk out and brighten any plate.
