  • 2 small heads bib lettuce, cores removed and halved
  • 4 radishes, sliced
  • 1/4 seedless cucumber, sliced
  • 4 tablespoons capers, drained
  • 2 tablespoons fresh dill or 2 teaspoons dried
  • 1/4 cup parsley leaves, a handful
  • 1 small shallot, chopped or 1/2 large shallot
  • 3 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil, eyeball it


Step 1

Place each half-head of lettuce on individual plates cut side down so the lettuce forms a mound on the plate. Arrange the radishes and cucumber slices around each lettuce mound. Place capers, dill, parsley, shallot, vinegar, salt and pepper in a blender. Turn blender on and stream in extra-virgin olive oil. Test seasonings in the dressing. Spoon the dressing evenly over the salads, capping the lettuce.
