Simple Lettuce Salad Recipe

MY Mother often fixed this salad when I was a child. I grew up on a farm and most of our food came right from the garden. We especially liked this in the spring, when early leaf lettuce appeared. After a long winter of cooked vegetables, this was a real treat.
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 10 min. YIELD:2 servings


  • 2 cups torn leaf lettuce
  • 1 hard-cooked egg, chopped
  • 1 green onion, sliced
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 1 teaspoon cider vinegar
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper


  • 1. In a salad bowl, combine the lettuce, egg and onion. In a small bowl, whisk the mayonnaise, vinegar and pepper. Pour over salad and toss to coat. Yield: 2 servings.
