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.
