This is one of the most requested recipes at Oleana, thanks in no small part to the fresh herbs, which make each bite an explosion of flavor. Don’t be stingy with the dressing; romaine is sturdy enough to handle a lot of it. Serve the salad as a refreshing first course or as a cooling antidote to spicy grilled fare.
Make Ahead Tips
The dressing can be made up to 3 days ahead and refrigerated, covered.

We loved the idea of grating the cucumber into the salad, and the creamy yogurt dressing is one I will use on a regular basis for other green salads as well! I didn't want to bother with the walnuts, so I
used pumpkin seeds as an alternate. Love you, Fine Cooking :)
This is interesting and tasty, but fussier than I'd like for a salad.
This salad was fantastic. It was a tiny bit bitter but I think that was because I didn’t have the highest quality herbs and romaine. I would definitely make this again.
