Angie’s salad

This is the salad I grew up eating.

The lettuce was always cold and crisp and the dressing was simple.

We never had any bottled dressings.

One head of iceberg or romaine lettuce

One sliced onion

One sliced cucumber

One or two sliced tomatoes

Two tablespoons fresh chopped parsley

1/2 cup olive oil

1/4 cup red wine vinegar

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon oregano

1/4 teaspoon basil

1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

Wash and tear the lettuce but make sure you spin the lettuce to get all the water off the leaves.

Add everything else including the spices , oil and vinegar. Then toss.

Sometimes my Mom would add some olives or homemade croutons.

This is a real palate cleanser and so refreshing and light.

After a while you won’t even have to measure anything.

I always just eyeball the ingredients.
