A good salad should be fresh and full of flavour. You must wash the lettuce thoroughly and dry it very well to remove any moisture. There are different kinds of lettuce, you can use the one you prefer most. Make sure its fresh, crispy and without any black spots. Preferably choose organic and if you have your own produce you are more than lucky.
Cut it in medium pieces and put the vinaigrette before you serve and not prior.
Variation 1: You can add nuts, baked tofu or black beans and make it a full meal.
Variation 2: Use any other green instead of lettuce.
Super easy and super healthy!! Enjoy!!
