Salad, when you have no lettuce

Does a salad need need to have lettuce?

When there is no lettuce in the house, I gather together what I have and will still make a salad bowl. Even when there has been so much travel, and I have only begun buying more vegetables.

Despite our travels the last weekend in May and the first weekend in June, I had bought cucumbers and tomatoes.

I am loving spiralized European cucumbers.  To make it company worthy, I chopped up a Roma tomato, and added some chopped pecans.  I topped it off with some Wishbone EVOO Caesar dressing.

With some crazy colors ftom my iPhone 8 Plus, here is a pic of what we didn’t eat.

After not eating the fluorescent version above, these were the leftovers, that I happily ate the next day.

I have learned to line the bowl of leftover salads with paper towels, which did take away the Caesar flavor of the dressing, but the pecans still had some snap.

Years ago, whilst in a new relationship, I remember the salad contests.  Who could put the most unusual ingredients in the salad bowl?

What is your favorite salad?
