1/2 cup Green Goddess Dressing
1 tablespoon chives, cut 1/4 inch wide
Salt, pepper and lemon juice to taste

  2. Combine lettuce, cucumber, and radishes in a large bowl. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.

Culinary Note:
The cucumbers, radishes and lettuce can be cut in advance. Wait until the last minute to cut the avocado or it will brown.


  • Replace cucumber and radishes, with any of the following vegetables: jicama, tomato, red, green or yellow peppers, cherry tomatoes, hearts of palm, or celery.
  • For a heartier salad: add 8 ounces of cooked chicken breast cut in ½ inch pieces tossed with 2 tablespoons dressing.
