This SIMPLE SALAD RECIPE is made using only eight ingredients. Yup, it’s that simple!

Honestly, I think I’ve made this wonderful SIMPLE SALAD RECIPE at least a hundred times, if not more. I love it not only for its ease of preparation, but also for its really great taste. One final claim to fame – it pairs really well with virtually any main course. Give it a try and we know you’ll soon be enjoying it as often as we do.

When you go to make it the first time, look for hydroponic Boston lettuce and organic strawberries – trust me, you will taste a difference from these fresh ingredients. There’s nothing too fancy about the dressing, but note that we’ve added neither salt nor pepper. We’ll leave that to you – a sprinkle of each onto your SIMPLE SALADS right before you serve.

Here are a few suggestions on what to serve these quick salads with: try it with simple mains like our EASY ROAST CHICKEN, our GRILLED LAMB CHOPS or our GRILLED JUMBO SHRIMP. We like it with this SWEET AND SPICY SALMON too.

This extra-amazing SIMPLE SALAD RECIPE is loved by family and guests alike.
