Straightforward and unencumbered basic tossed salad. In the next few weeks I'll be having heirloom tomatoes and lemon cucumbers from our garden ready to use in this salad! A simple light vinaigrette of red wine vinegar and extra virgin olive oil worked nicely. Thanks for posting. cg

You can't go wrong with this simple salad. I used bagged iceberg lettuce that also had some shredded carrot and red cabbage in place of the head lettuce. The salad was served with Italian dressing. Made for the Summer Salad Snapshot Event.
