I went to Trader Joe’s and saw that unusual lettuce sold in packages. It had tiny cute crisp green leaves. The name of the lettuce on the package was Mache Lettuce, and the package also noted the lettuce’s alternate name – Lamb’s Lettuce. The package with lamb’s lettuce also had an orange sticker that said “Great With Avocadoes”. So I came back from Trader Joe’s with the mache lamb’s lettuce and a couple of avocadoes, ready to make a yummy new salad!
Here’s a picture of Trader Joe’s package of Mache (Lamb’s) Lettuce:

Whisk together balsamic vinegar and olive oil to make a dressing (3 parts oil to 1 part vinegar). In a bowl, toss the mache lettuce with the dressing. Put the lettuce on a plate.
Peel and pit the avocado. Thinly slice the avocado. Put the avocado slices on top of the lettuce.
