This dish is the epitome of fresh, interesting ingredients prepared simply. Here, you’ll be using not one, but two specialty varieties of lettuce. The alliteratively-named red rose romaine is a small, buttery variety that’s blushed with crimson at the edges. Painted oak lettuce, named for its tight rosettes of dappled leaves that resemble those of an oak tree, is mild and delicately sweet. The autumnal colors and cool crispness of these lettuces are reminders that fall is just around the corner.
