  1. In a large bowl, add all ingredients in order as listed and as you are preparing them (washing and chopping the vegetables).
  2. Stir well and gently, and serve immediately or within a few hours.

Store: To make ahead, refrigerate all vegetables covered in a bowl, and add oils, salt and pepper right before serving (as soon as you add salt – salad “leaks”).


*Use garden’s bounty or winter store’s availability. Any type of cucumbers (pickle, dill, garden, long English, Persian), peeled or not, work. Any type of full-grown, grape or cherry tomatoes work. As for lettuce – Boston, red leaf, romaine, butter, green leaf are great. Just make sure to chop all vegetables in similar sizes.
