Iceberg Lettuce Salad


Sometimes it is easy to get caught up with the latest craze.  The latest craze usually means you will pay more money and usually in my case crave the old. New doesn’t always mean better you know.  The old usually is comfortable, warm and familiar and the other side of the street is not always that welcoming. You have to learn new taste all over and usually that takes a lot of time and let’s faces it at a certain age, you don’t feel like it!
Well, the iceberg lettuce was on sale at the local grocers and I bought it. I decided to dress it up and show this “old girl” still can strut her stuff!!  She had snap and pizzazz she crunched and knew she was sassy and showed that with age comes knowledge that you know where you came from and where you are going and you know you have it!  And you didn’t have to work hard to please. You Go Girl!!

Ingredients:

1 head of ice berg lettuce – quartered
2 Kirby cucumbers – quartered
Handful of radishes – sliced
1 red onion – sliced
Fresh grated Romano cheese

Dressing:

Juice of 1 lemon
¼ tsp. salt
¼ tsp. black pepper
2 tablespoons of olive oil

Quarter the lettuce and arrange on a platter.  Add the cucumber, radishes, onions and grated cheese.  Finish with the dressing.

Enjoy with Love,

Catherine

  3. Catherine, iceberg lettuce is a good salad for any time! I recently ordered it in a restaurant and forgot how good and easy it is. You certainly did dress it up and I'll be trying your version. Hugs, Pam

  5. Catherine, That is a very attractive Iceberg Lettuce Salad. I'd add the cucumber spears to my favorite 'wedge' of iceberg lettuce topped with blue cheese, garlic croutons, pieces of real smoked bacon and topped with Hendrickson's sweet and sour salad dressing. Take Care, Big Daddy Dave
