I’ve been working on recipes for the new cookbook for so long that I’ve gotten into the habit of more elaborate meals and it feels good to not only enjoy but look forward to an easy lettuce salad with a very simple salad dressing and one garnish.
Fill a bowl with lettuce torn into bite-size pieces. Toss with dressing. Garnish with one item.
Shake or whisk together fresh lemon or lime juice, extra-virgin olive oil, sea salt and freshly ground black pepper. Taste and adjust to your taste.
toasted nuts or seeds
shredded chicken or turkey
sliced pepperoni, pastrami, corned beef, or prosciutto
