Lettuce Salad with Apple Cider Vinegar

Summer Salad

Couple of weeks ago, we had planned a holi potluck for breakfast with our cooking club group. Unfortunately it got postponed but by then I had already ordered ingredients for some savoury muffins. So what to do with so much at hand? I decided to make few salads/ roasted herb tomatoes and have a healthy week.

Sun and cool salad

I am not really a salad person but slowly and gradually I am exploring with what I have and what I can do. I just threw in the ingredients at hand with a liberal dash of olive oil and have a winner at hand. V also loved it.

Lettuce Salad with Apple Cider Vinegar

A liberal dash of olive oil is all that is required

It’s a cold salad, so all you need is little steamed broccoli and everything else can be put together in a jiffy for a great taste. I used apple cider vinegar as it was in the pantry, else balsamic vinegar will go very well with it.
