"You can substitute other lettuces - my small local grocery didn't have any Bibb or Boston on hand the night I shopped so we used Romaine. Making a fresh dressing encouraged my picky daughter to try something besides ranch, she agreed this was good! No one in my family likes exactly the same salad toppings, so I tend to make individual salads - daughter doesn't like blue cheese and husband is allergic to walnuts."
