5 ounces English cucumber, halved lengthwise and thinly sliced

5 ounces red leaf lettuce, washed and torn into bite-size pieces

1 tablespoon canola oil

1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice

1 teaspoon honey

1 teaspoon lightly packed lemon zest

1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper


  1. Combine cucumber and lettuce in a bowl and, using clean hands, toss to mix thoroughly.
  2. Mix remaining ingredients in a small jar with a tight-fitting lid, close, and shake until well combined. Pour over greens and toss until lettuce is well coated with dressing. Taste and adjust seasoning, as desired. Serve immediately.
