Butter Lettuce Salad Gone Wild

Preparation for 101 Cookbook's Morrocan Mint Roasted Veggies 

I was very hungry while walking home from Fort Mason today.  I composed this salad in my head as I walked.  There may be a creative advantage induced by the movement of the body impelled by the need to be fed. The salad was delicious. I plan having it often. (The photo may be confusing but I was too hungry to photograph the salad before I ate it.My appologies)

3T sunflower seeds
1/3 c fennel, diced small
2 oz.cubed Cow Girl Creamery devil's gulch cheese

1 T sliced green onion

1 T roasted walnut oil
