Colorful Lettuce salad

  • Lettuce - 2 cups chopped
  • Yellow bell pepper - 1/2 cup coarsely chopped
  • Orange bell pepper - 1/2 cup coarsely chopped
  • Grape tomatoes - 1 cup whole
  • Red Onion - 1/2 cup coarsely chopped
  • Cilantro - 1tbsp chopped
  • Assorted shredded cheese - 1 tbsp.
  • Almonds - 2 tbsp. sliced
Salad Dressing:
  • Olive oil - 1 tbsp.
  • Lemon juice - 1/2 tbsp.
  • Fresh ground pepper  - as required
  • Fresh ground sea salt - as required
  • Parmesan cheese - 1/2 tbsp. shredded
  • In a salad bowl, whisk together the salad dressing in the order of the ingredients listed above.
  • One the dressing is mixed well, add the Salad ingredients beginning with lettuce and following the order as listed.
  • Every time toss the salad in the bowl as you add a new ingredient. If tossing is difficult, gently mix the salad using a wide spatula.
  • Care should be taken the salad is not crushed while mixing or tossing.
  • Make sure most of the salad is coated with the salad dressing.
  • Add more salt, pepper or lemon juice if needed.
  • Serve immediately or store in refrigerator for 15 minutes and serve cold.
  • Choice of lettuce is as per your liking. I like Iceberg lettuce in salads since it is more juicy. You can use Romaine Lettuce too.
  • You can add some cooked salad shrimp or grilled chicken breast to add more proteins to the salad.
  • Lemon juice can be substituted with vinegar.

  1. looks yummy... keep posting more of such healthy recipes...

  2. Hi Ganesh,

    Iceberg lettuce is not a healthy lettuce at all. It was invented for mailing/transportation. Romaine and other leaf lettuces are better options.

  3. It looks great...I would add some chopped cucumber, but its just me.
