Equipment

  • 1 Cutting board
  • 1 Knife be sure to clean and rinse in between uses
  • 1 Large Mixing Bowl with lid

Ingredients

  • 1 small head Iceberg lettuce chopped
  • 1 whole cucumber cleaned and sliced in ½
  • 10 petite cherry tomatoes
  • 1 tsp Dash Original seasoning
  • ¼ tsp ground black pepper
  • ¼ cup croutons
  • Shredded marbled cheddar cheese about a handful to sprinkle

Instructions

  • Lettuce Head: Remove any brown leaves from the lettuce head before cutting into it. Using a vegetable-designated cutting board and a sharp knife, cut off the root of the lettuce and then in that same area - in a tight circle/triangle-like manner - cut a few inches deep into the whitest part of the head (the core) until it meets and either falls out or you can pull out.
  • Discard all of the bad parts to make room for chopping the rest into bite-sized pieces to match the rest of the ingredients. We chop in ½, then chop each ½ into ⅓s, and cut those into smaller pieces. Add to the large mixing bowl. Set aside. Rinse your cutting board and knife.
  • Cucumber: Scrub the cucumber under cold running water to clean thoroughly. Pat dry with a paper towel and transfer to the vegetable cutting board to slice thinly and then in ½. Add to the large mixing bowl. Set aside. Rinse your cutting board and knife.
  • Cherry Tomatoes: Rinse under cold running water to clean thoroughly. Pat dry with a paper towel and transfer to the vegetable cutting board to slice in ½ or ¼. Add to the large mixing bowl. Set aside. Rinse your knife, we're done with that cutting board.
  • Add your seasonings and if adding cheese, do so as you please, along with the croutons. Feel free to season more if you'd like, or simply place the lid onto the bowl, mix, and enjoy with your favorite dressing!

Notes

We had some popcorn chicken and pepperoni that we added, but feel free to add whatever additions you please, just enjoy!

Storage Tips

In an airtight container, the premade salad will last for up to 5 - 7 days. After 5 days, the quality of the lettuce will degrade, as it starts to wilt.
