This romaine salad is perfect for hot summer days. You can prepare the salad in advance and eat it the next day. In this case, don’t mix the salad with the dressing and keep both the dressing and the salad in the fridge separately. Just add the dressing before serving.

This recipe can also be easily adapted so if you don’t have radishes or celery it’s totally fine. Just skip the veggies that you don’t have on hand. You can also use cilantro or basil instead of parsley, soft fresh mozzarella instead of feta, or avocado or flaxseed oil instead of olive oil.
