Bibb Lettuce Salads with Caper Dressing Caps

This recipe’s zesty dressing is extra flavorful and can be served with a variety of veggie and salad combos. For a complete meal, serve with Great Goulash: Ground Turkey Paprikash and Macaroni.


  • 2 small heads Bibb lettuce, cores removed and halved
  • 4 radishes, sliced
  • 1/4 English (seedless) cucumber, sliced
  • 4 tablespoons capers, drained
  • 2 tablespoons fresh dill or 2 teaspoons dried dill
  • 1/4 cup parsley leaves (a handful)
  • 1 small shallot or 1/2 large shallot, chopped
  • 3 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil (EVOO)


Place each half head of lettuce on individual plates cut-side down so that the lettuce forms a mound on the plate. Arrange the radishes and cucumber slices around each lettuce mound.

Place capers, dill, parsley, shallot, vinegar, salt and pepper in a blender. Turn blender on and stream in EVOO. Test seasonings in the dressing and adjust to taste.

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