  • Your favorite dressing (Caesar dressing is good with this)


Toss all ingredients just before serving.

Preparing Romaine lettuce -
salad spinner like mine A Romaine lettuce "head," although it is not a head, consists of long leaves bound at the root end. To prepare the leaves to be bite-sized pieces for a salad, do this.

  • Clean a sink and fill it with water or fill a very large bowl with water.
  • Lay the bundle of leaves on a large cutting board. Trim off the tops of the leaves in one cut. This removes the tough leaf tips.
  • Cut off the root end.
  • Cut the leaves lengthwise into thirds or halves, depending on the width of the leaves
  • Cut across the length into 1 inch pieces or to the size that you need.
  • Place the cut leaves in the water to wash the leaves
  • Place the leaves in a salad spinner to remove the water - drain the lettuce in a large colander.
  • Refrigerate the lettuce until it is time to use it.

Salad Spinner

Pictured on this page is a green salad spinner. This spinner is the one that I have. It's made by OXO. I like the color of it, but what I like most is how functional it is. Not only does it work well at removing water from vegetables, it can be used to store lettuce. After I dry lettuce with it, I dump out the water, lock down the top knob, and put the whole thing in the refrigerator.
