Garden-fresh Salad with Meunière Butter Dressing

Jackie Cameron
I’m sharing my garden-fresh salad with Meunière butter dressing with you – you can’t get greener than this. It comprises fresh greens and a bunch of herbs topped with crunchy-and-crispy sage leaves that add an enticing earthiness. One of the most simply delicious salad recipes ever focusing on what your garden has to offer.
