  • Dressing
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon cider vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • Salad
  • 1 head of butter lettuce leaves separated
  • 1 head of radicchio sliced thin
  • 3 green onions green and white parts, sliced thinly
  • 10 radishes trimmed and cut into 1/8-inch thick slices
  • 1 cup sun-dried tomatoes in oil drained, whole or diced (Bella Sun Luci is an excellent brand)
  • 2 tablespoons capers whole if small or very roughly chopped
  • 1/2 cup shaved Parmesan cheese more or less to taste
  • Freshly ground black pepper to taste


  • In a medium bowl combine lemon juice, vinegar, mustard, salt, and the ¼ teaspoon pepper. Add the oil and whisk until fully blended. Set aside.
  • Wash the lettuce leaves, dry well and keep whole or tear into large pieces. Arrange in blossom or flower shape on serving platter, or toss in large salad bowl. Add the radicchio, green onions, radishes and tomatoes; either placing over butter lettuce on serving platter or tossing with lettuce in bowl.
  • Drizzle salad dressing over salad if serving on platter and sprinkle with capers and top with shaved Parmesan. If using salad bowl, toss dressing, capers, and cheese before serving.
