Our family's Italian green salad is the best!
Italian dressing, tossed salad
Calories: 55 kcal
(butter lettuce, romaine or a combination)
white bottoms of 2 green onions
(not extra virgin)
white balsamic vinegar
scant 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
Use a pre-washed bag of lettuce or, if starting with a head of lettuce, make sure the leaves are rinsed and dried. Place your lettuce in a large bowl.
If using the white part of the green onions, rinse the green onions, snip off the root end and slice the white part of the onion thinly. Add the white onion slices to your salad.
Add the dressing ingredients one at a time and toss with two spoons to mix well.
Serve immediately and finish leftovers within an hour or so. Leftover salad will get soggy, but keep it refrigerated if saving it.
If you want to make extra dressing and store it separately, it will keep well in a covered container at room temperature. (If you refrigerate it, the oil will solidify and separate from the vinegar.)
