Quick Lettuce Salad

I tried this salad for the first time in one of my local favorite restaurants. Since then, every time I visit the place, I look forward to having this salad. Now I don’t know what exactly goes into it, but I tried the following and I absolutely love it. We have been having it every day this last week! It is simple, goes great as a side dish… and I love the sourness that the lemon juice adds to the whole meal. We’ve had it with everyday indian food and with a simple burger, so it is very versatile! A special note, if you generally don’t eat spicy food, de-seed the jalapeno before using it. I’ve had one off super spicy jalapenos which kept making me chug water more than my meal!

Quick Lettuce Salad

Makes: 2 servings
Ready in: 5 minutes


  • 1 heart romaine lettuce
  • 1 medium tomato
  • half small white onion
  • 1 jalapeno
  • juice of half a lemon
  • salt to taste


1. Slice the jalapeno in circles and chop the onion and tomatoes length wise. In a mixing bowl, add the onion, tomato, jalapeno, lemon juice and salt to taste and mix it well. If you prefer something less spicy you can de-seed the jalapeno before using it.

2. Roughly chop the lettuce and toss the salad nicely to get all of it to coat the lettuce. Taste as you go to make sure that the lemon has coated the salad well. I absolutely enjoy eating raw jalapenos but those of you who can’t, can keep them to the side and still enjoy the rest of this lemon-y goodness!
