After much trial and error, I came up with this recipe for an easy side salad. When company's coming I don't want to be in the kitchen chopping vegetables, so I make this the day before. The idea for salting the lettuce is from a Cook's Country magazine article, and surprisingly it doesn't make the salad watery!
