Course: Salad
Cuisine: American
Servings: 4 Servings


  • Lettuce or basic salad mix - 4 cups
  • Red onion - ¼ cup thinly sliced
  • Cucumber - 15 thin slices
  • Cherry tomatoes - 15
  • Croutons - few


  • If starting with a whole head of lettuce, shred them into bite size pieces. I used a bag of chopped salad, that had a mix of lettuce, carrot and purple cabbage.
  • Measure out about 4 cups of the lettuce mix into a large bowl.
  • Add the rest of the vegetables to the mix. You could also use broccoli, bell pepper along with cucumbers and tomatoes.
  • Add your choice of salad dressing and mix well. I used store bought creamy Vidalia onion dressing this time.
  • Top with croutons and serve immediately. I also add shredded cheese at times.
