Easiest Salad Ever

Easiest salad ever--for real! The method is the key (and my thanks to my neighbor Lisa for first telling me to mix salad this way). If you're fortunate enough to have flavored oils and/or vinegars on hand, by all means give them a try in this. I need hardly say this is best with super fresh lettuce, but even supermarket lettuce will do in a pinch. Now that our CSA pick-ups have started, this will become a regular feature at our house.

  • chopped lettuce, any type
  • any other bits and pieces (small pieces salad veggies, bacon bits, whatever)
  • olive oil
  • balsamic vinegar
  • salt and pepper
  • shaved or shredded cheese, if desired (herb-flavored cheeses like pesto or dill are especially nice)
In a bowl, combine lettuce and veggies. Pour in a small amount of olive oil and balsamic vinegar (I use 1/2 tablespoon each for about 4-5 cups of greens + miscellaneous veggies). Toss all together with your hands. Add salt and pepper to taste. Enjoy!
