Ingredients

  • 1 head romaine lettuce
  • 10 cherry tomatoes
  • salt as required, I prefer a little salt like ½ teaspoon
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper powder
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

Instructions

  • Gently tear the leaves from the romaine lettuce head.
  • Wash all the leaves gently and dry them but make sure they are very clean. In case you don't want to use all the leaves, go for the inside ones as they are the most fresh. As I mentioned earlier, you can use a salad spinner to wash and dry the leaves.
  • Chop the leaves or you can gently tear them with your hands.
  • Wash the cherry tomatoes too, you can cut them in half if you like it that way, or you can use them whole. If you are using regular tomatoes, cut them into medium sized pieces.
  • Transfer the chopped lettuce leaves and cherry tomatoes to a large bowl.
  • Add the salt and lemon juice, and also black pepper and olive oil.
  • Toss all ingredients gently until well combined. Scoop out the contents to salad bowls and serve!
