Here's a refreshing, simple salad of buttery lettuce leaves, crisp vegetables, and a bright vinaigrette. You can find all sorts of white wine vinegar in the grocery store these days from Champagne to Pinot Grigio. Add a few to your pantry to dress up your salads and marinades. English cucumbers are the kind you find shrink-wrapped in the produce department. They have thinner skins and smaller seeds than regular cucumbers. For a pretty presentation, peel away long strips of cucumber peel every half-inch or so with a vegetable peeler for a striped effect before you slice the cucumber into rounds. When in season, use watermelon radishes for a striking accent.
