  1. Mix water and TREHA®︎ well to make soaking solution. Soak the baby gems lettuce leaves in TREHA®︎ soaking solution for 30 minutes. Drain, spin dry and refrigerate until needed.

  2. Dress tomatoes with the olive oil, salt and pepper and leave at room temperature until needed.

  3. Pick the chervil, and tarragon from the stems, and slice the chives in ½ inch diagonal lengths. Set the herbs aside. Slice the radishes and set aside.

  4. To prepare the croutons: Toss the torn pieces with olive oil, salt and pepper and toast in an oven until deep golden brown.

  5. To prepare the Green Goddess Dressing: Place all the ingredients in a blender, and blend until smooth. If the dressing is too thick it can be thinned with a little water. Season to taste with lemon juice, and salt and pepper.

  6. To serve: Place the Baby Gems on a plate, with all the leaves facing in the same direction. If you have the time, it always looks nice to re-assemble the halves back to their original shape. Combine the herbs, radishes, and tomatoes and sprinkle over the salad. Top with the Green Goddess Dressing and the croutons. Serve immediately.
