             Basic green salad
Ingredients :
  1. small head of butter lettuce (also known as Bibb or Boston lettuce)
  2. 1/2 small head of red or green leaf lettuce
  3. 1/2 small head of romaine lettuce
  4. Approximately 1/4 cup salad dressing (your choice)
How to make Basic green salad
  • Separate the lettuce leaves from their heads and discard any cores. Place the leaves in a bowl of cold water.
  • Soak the leaves briefly to dislodge any dirt or debris by swishing them around with your hands. Be gentle so as not to bruise the leaves.
  • Drain the clean leaves in a colander. Blot off any excess water with a clean kitchen towel or by using a salad spinner.
  • Tear the greens into bite-size pieces. Toss the greens in a large bowl with the salad dressing until the greens are just lightly coated with the dressing. Transfer to salad plates and serve.
To get a head start on making the salad, clean the greens, wrap them in a clean, dry kitchen towel, and place the towel in a plastic bag. Leave the bag open and refrigerate. The leaves keep for up to one week.

Chill your salad plates to keep those greens as crisp as possible
  • Drying salad greens can be a chore, but a salad spinner can make quick work of the job. A salad spinner is a piece of equipment that is really quite handy. If the spinner makes preparing salad more attractive to you, why not invest in this moderately priced kitchen tool? Or better yet, put it on your holiday wish list.
  • Tearing greens is preferable to cutting them. It’s easy and gentler on the greens, and it looks better, too.
  • If you would like to expand your salad into a heartier and more colorful dish, consider the following additions.
  1. Sliced cucumber
  2. Cherry tomatoes
  3. Sliced radishes
  4. Sliced avocado
  5. Thinly sliced red onion
  6. Croutons
  7. Shredded or crumbled cheese
