For me lettuce is like a blank canvas just waiting to be built upon. I rarely make the same salad twice. Depending on my mood there is always something different to be added or taken away. I do like to start with a nice mix of greens: butter lettuce, arugula, red leaf and sometimes endive and go from there. This week's combination includes tuna, feta, white beans, roasted red peppers and avocados.
I like really light dressings on my salads. My favorite, which I used here, is a combination of olive oil and lemon juice seasoned with salt and pepper. Quick, easy and perfect for a weekday lunch...this is what's inside my Brown Bag this week.
