Don’t underestimate the power of a changing up your greens as a base- butter lettuce’s mellow yet smooth texture makes it the perfect supporter to the stars of the show.

The creamy: avocado and to a lesser degree, butter lettuce
The salty: prosciutto, blanched toasted almonds
The tart: the grapefruit
The sweet: the grapefruit, white balsamic vinaigrette
