This was delicious, my whole family loved it. Very light and fresh. Next time I would double the dressing to have a little more, it was yummy. I used dried parsley because I did not have fresh, and I cooked the green beans separately, while the potatoes were cooling so that I could get both vegetables cooked perfectly. My potatoes took close to 20 mins and I didn't want mushy green beans. Lastly, I only used 3/4 of the lettuce for my family of 4. That was enough!
