Chop red leaf lettuce (very finely shredded)
Place diced tomatoes and sliced radishes, and green onions on top of lettuce
Drizzle dressing on top
(canola oil, apple vinegar, “Maggi” or Soy sauce, & horseradish mustard)
There are no specific measurements for the dressing ingredients, just “what looks right”. For authentic Swiss taste use “Maggie”. Soy sauce is our closest equivalent if you can’t make it to a specialty store. Wisk all dressing ingredients together.
Toss salad and serve
