Buttery chunks of avocado, little hints of radish heat, and a simple, lemony vinaigrette make this salad a crisp and refreshing balm.
  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 2 (6- to 8-oz) firm-ripe avocados
  • 3 heads Bibb lettuce (3/4 lb total), leaves torn if large
  • 1 heart of romaine, sliced crosswise into 1-inch pieces
  • 3 medium radishes, thinly sliced
  • Whisk together lemon juice, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper, then whisk in oil.
  • Quarter, pit, and peel avocados, then cut into bite-size pieces. Toss with greens, radishes, and just enough dressing to coat. Season with salt and pepper.
