      The simplicity of a fresh salad is one of the hallmarks of our meals. Regardless of what is on the menu, a simple seasonal salad is our favorite way to start the feast. Fresh, crisp lettuce, a bright addition of fruit and tangy vinaigrette is the perfect starter to please the palate. The bright, floral beauty of the Meyer lemon lends perfectly to a vinaigrette. Just a simple squeeze of the yellow fruit and you'll have a terrific dressing for even the simplest of salads.

      For the vinaigrette: Combine all vinaigrette ingredients in a medium bowl. Whisk together well.
