Simple Lettuce Salad

 Simple Lettuce Salad
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.
2 ServingsPrep/Total Time: 10 min.


  • 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


  • 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.
