Juice of 1 medium lemon (about 2 tablespoons)

1 tablespoon Dijon mustard 

1/2 small shallot, minced 

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper 

3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil 

2 large heads butter, Boston or Bibb lettuce, torn into bite-sized pieces 

4 radishes, thinly sliced 

1 Persian cucumber, thinly sliced 

1 tablespoon fresh chives, cut into 1/2-inch pieces 


  1. Whisk the lemon juice, Dijon and shallot together in a bowl with 1/4 teaspoon salt and pepper to taste. Let stand 5 minutes to soften the bite of the shallot. Add the olive oil while whisking to emulsify.
  2. Combine the lettuce, radishes, cucumbers and chives in a salad bowl. Toss with just enough vinaigrette to coat. Serve immediately.
