I came up with this combination as a teen and it has always been my favorite. You can use any salad dressing of your choice and top with boiled eggs, sunflower seeds, cheese, croutons, bacon bits or whatever you choose. My preference with this one...just serve it like it is. The juices from the tomatoes are all the dressing I require! It is very colorful, light and refreshing! I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
- 1 cucumber, unpeeled and sliced
- 1 head iceberg lettuce
- 1 green pepper, sliced and cut into bite size pieces
- 2 -3 tomatoes, unpeeled and cut into large chunks
- 1⁄2-1 bermuda onion, sliced and rings separated
- Toss together in large bowl.
- Serve immediately.
I tried this last night. Cindy is right - the juice from the tomatoes does make a dressing. And it is delicious. This is very easy and simple to make with minimal preparation, so would be a good choice for children to start with (as long as the cutting of ingredients was supervised). After trying the recipe exactly as it reads, I did add some of my favourite ingredients - olives and just a dash of a dressing (made from lemon, vinegar, salt and sugar). This gave it a very unusual taste which I will be happy to eat again tonight.
This is my go to tossed salad. I love the veggies in this and added radishes, other colors of bell pepper and/ or blue cheese crumbles as well. The family wanted dressing on theirs but this can be eaten plain or with oil and vinegar just as easily. The tomatoes must be good and ripe. The Bermuda onion sounds so fancy but it is just sweet onion. Scrumptious. Thanks for posting Cindy Lynn, I grew up on this salad and love it just as much now as then. Enjoy! ChefDLH
Really good fresh salad. I also added some radishes and smoked gouda cubes. Easy and delish. Thanks for sharing. Made for Name That Ingredient Tag.
