So let's be posh, and delicate, and delicious, and serve our guests Vichyssoise (and use up that salad glut at the same time!)
The METHOD is simple; Sweat the aromats in the olive oil, then add potato, bay and stock. Simmer till potato is soft then add your greenery. Cook for only a few mins, so the lettuce softens but doesn't start to loose it's colour.
Blend with stick blender then stir in Creme fraiche if using. Chill down for a couple of hours before serving.
