1/4 cup parsley leaves, a handful

1 small shallot, chopped or 1/2 large shallot

3 tablespoons red wine vinegar

  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.

Spoon the dressing evenly over the salads, capping the lettuce.
