Loose leaf salad

Loose leaf lettuce (also called leaf lettuce) varieties are those 

lettuces that do not form a compact head. Their flavor tends to 

be mild and sweet. Most home gardeners who grow lettuce 

raise the loose leaf type. Loose leaf lettuce typically is one of 

the firs and last offerings at Farmers’ Markets. 

The sweet, tangy taste of this apple cider vinegar dressing is a perfect compliment .


2 cups of green loose leaf lettuce (measured after leaves have been torn into pieces)

Possible add-ins:  

 – Sliced radishes – Apples, with peels, cut into thin slices – Dried cranberries – Mandarin oranges

– Chopped pecans

 Note: This amount of dressing makes one serving  

2 teaspoons mild-flavored vegetable oil, such as canola oil

 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar

 1/2 teaspoon sugar

Whisk, oil, vinegar and sugar together in a small bowl.   Mix with lettuce and any additional salad ingredients, tossing to coat.  Serve right away.
