Simple Romaine Salad

Sometimes you just need a Simple Romaine Salad and this is my go to easy salad. This is great for every season. In spring and summer next to grilled meat. Fall and winter with comfort foods to make them lighter. Any time of year this salad works.

I like to make this salad with small chopped pieces. I don’t like to CUT my salad. I want to dig in with just a fork and get little bits of everything. This salad starts you out with only a few ingredients and many times, I just leave it there. But you can add what ever you want. Add cherry tomatoes, add English cucumber, add what ever you love in a salad but please know, just these few staple salad ingredients are fantastic on there own.

One thing I will stress just from my experience, people like this salad chopped small like I said above. If you make it for a gathering, try chopping small and see what people say. I think you will be happy. Maybe we want to be treated like kids again, I don’t know, but it works.

Ingredients

  • Romaine lettuce, chopped well
  • 1/2 an orange pepper chopped well
  • 2 oz.+ block cheddar cheese, chopped small, (if you like cheese in salad)
  • 1/4 cup or more of whole almonds, chopped, (if you like nuts in salad)

Instructions

  1. Now this is when you look in the fridge and decide what you have and what you want in this Simple Romaine Salad. Above is my basics, but take the nuts out if you want. Add tomatoes, do what works for you.
  2. Then I tend to toss this salad myself and serve. This is my preference, I don't like to try and decide among ten dressings. I usually lightly, very lightly, toss with a favorite Italian dressing or very lightly toss with a blue cheese if we are having red meat.
  3. Make it your own and enjoy.
