Salt and pepper to taste
In a small bowl, whisk together all the dressing and set aside.
To a large salad plate layer the butter lettuce, then raddicchio, apple, pomegranate seeds, and walnuts. If waiting to serve, squeeze some fresh lemon juice on the apple slices so they dont brown.
Drizzle the vinaigrette over the salad ingredients. Gently toss the salad to coat the ingredients evenly with the vinaigrette. Enjoy!
