Oak leaf and baby romaine lettuces are so tender they’re best eaten straight from the garden or at least within a day or two of picking. Mild and delicate, they pair wonderfully with peppery radishes and chopped hard-boiled eggs in this easy salad.

Prep: 30 Minutes | Total Time: 30 Minutes
  • small cucumber, peeled, seeded and chopped
  • 1/4 cup
    extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons
    red-wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons
    fresh chives, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons
    fresh parsley, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon
    nonfat or low-fat plain yogurt
  • 1 teaspoon
    Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon
    prepared horseradish
  • 1 teaspoon
  • 1/2 teaspoon
  • 1/2 small
    garlic clove
  • 1 pinch

    Red Oak or other red leaf lettuce
  • 2 cups
    Freckles or other baby romaine
  • 1/2 cup
    sliced radishes

  1. To prepare vinaigrette: Puree cucumber, oil, vinegar, chives, parsley, yogurt, mustard, horseradish, sugar and 1/2 teaspoon salt in a blender until smooth.

Serve the salad garnished with radishes, scallions and hard-boiled egg.
