The Green Salad

A bowl of lettuce on the table

NOTE: These little green salads are made up of Bibb lettuce heads, and served in individual bowls. The olive oil and lemon dressing is just perfect, giving the sweet buttery lettuce a delicious flavor. Serve with crusty bread if desired.

A great salad for St. Patrick's Day.
