Midday Meal :: Butter Lettuce, Candied Rutabaga and Turnip

This salad, much like the last, can be prepared with a very laissez-faire attitude. The soft butter lettuce, sweet candied rutabaga, peppery turnip and fresh dill share a plate just so for the perfect bite. We also drizzled a simple mustard vinaigrette over top. photography + styling by karen mordechai
