I love enjoying this simple salad alongside rich proteins like salmon, roast chicken or steak. It adds a crisp freshness and helps balance the heartiness of the proteins.
Technique tip: If you don't like the bite of raw red onions; after slicing, soak them in salted water for about 10 minutes, then rinse off and pat dry.
Swap option: This is great with any lettuce variety you like.
- One container spring mix lettuce
- 1/4 cup thinly sliced red onion
- 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
- Kosher salt and fresh black pepper
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
In a large bowl toss the lettuce, onion, and lemon juice. Sprinkle lightly with salt and a few grinds of black pepper. Rest for a few minutes, the drizzle over olive oil, toss again.
