  1. A note on olive oil: I like Monini Gran Frutto the best but Laudemino, or Lucini are also good brands that are available nationwide Place the lettuce leaves in a large bowl, sprinkle with about 2 pinches of fleur de sel or coarse sea salt, and toss. Drizzle the lettuce with 1 to 2 teaspoons (or more to taste) of olive oil; toss very well to coat all the leaves. Let the salad sit for 5 minutes and toss it again. Add a little more oil if the leaves are not coated, but be careful not to use too much oil, otherwise the salad will be heavy and the lettuce will get soggy. Add freshly ground pepper, if desired.
