Mache Salad with Avocado, Walnuts and Goat Cheese

Have you tried Mache? It is a delicate green that is sometimes called Lambs Lettuce and can be found in a bag at Trader Joe's. It is a great base for a salad- I added some butter lettuce leaves to this one along with chevre, toasted walnuts, and avocado.

Great Lunch Salad

Mache Salad
1 bag mache lettuce
1/2 head butter lettuce
3 ounces goat cheese
1/4 cup toasted walnuts
1 avocado, cut into cubes

3 tablespoons white balsamic vinegar 
4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1/2 shallot, diced fine
1/4 teaspoon salt

Dice shallot and let sit in vinegar for 10 minutes before adding olive oil. This gently "cooks" the shallot a little bit and mellows the flavor. Slowly mix in olive oil and salt.
