I'm a sucker for fresh butter lettuce with citrus and avocado. I adapted this recipe (rather major adaptions) from a recipe in the America's Test Kitchen Menu's cookbook. I thought the salad, and the dressing in particular, was just amazing. The mayo, Dijon and honey balance nicely with tanginess of the tangerine juice. If you are in the mood for a bright and flavorful dressing, look no further!
