This punchy, vibrant summer salad is all you need (perhaps alongside some boiled potatoes or crusty bread) to complete a supper cooked on the barbecue.


  • 2 Large Red Gem LettucesĀ 
  • 3 Spring Onions, green and white parts sliced on an angle
  • 4 Large Radishes, thinly sliced
  • 2 Handfuls Semi-dried Tomatoes, in large slices
  • 2 tbsp Nonpareil Capers
  • 1 Very Large Garlic Clove, crushed
  • 1 tbsp Fresh Lemon Juice
  • 1 tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • Sea Salt
  • Freshly Ground Black Pepper


  1. Rinse, tear and scatter the lettuce leaves in a large salad bowl.
  2. Scatter across the top the spring onions, radish slices, capers and semi-dried tomatoes. If you can’t get these, you can use sun-dried and it will still be delicious, but not as lovely as if you were to use the sweeter, softer semi-dried.
  3. In a small bowl whisk together the lemon juice, olive oil, crushed garlic, a good large pinch of sea salt and many grinds of black pepper to make the dressing. Drizzle over the leaves, and serve.
