  • 2 romaine lettuce hearts
  • 4 scallions
  • 4-5 dill sprigs plus some extra for garnish
  • 1 English cucumber
  • cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 4 tbsp red wine vinegar
  • sea salt
  • 6-7 olives for garnish-optional


  • Wash lettuce leaves very well, let them drain in a colander, and dry them on a paper towel. You can also use a salad spinner. 

Prepare the greens

  • Chop lettuce in thin strips. Slice the scallions-greens included.
    Slice cucumber into coins. I like to keep the skin on. Roughly chop the dill sprigs. 

Make the dressing

  • In a bowl, whisk well ⅓ cup of extra virgin olive oil, 4 tbsp red wine vinegar, and a pinch of salt.


  • Place all in a large salad bowl, and toss well with the dressing. Garnish with olives and few small dill sprigs. Serve immediately.
