Instructions

1Clean the lettuce by separating all the leaves and discarding any wilted ones. Run each one under running water and rinse any dirt off.

2If not using a salad spinner, dry each one off with a kitchen towel then take several leaves at a time and break them up into smaller handfuls. If you are using a salad spinner, break the leaves first and then dry them in a spinner. Transfer cleaned and dry lettuce leaves into a salad bowl.

3Peel and cut the cucumbers and combine them with the lettuce.

4Add olive oil, salt and pepper. Mix well and serve. You can sprinkle some walnuts and/or sunflower seeds on top.

Tips

  • You can buy a bag of ready, washed, dried and cut lettuce or you can go the extra mile and prep the lettuce yourself. See the method below. A whole lettuce will last 2-3 days longer in the fridge than a ready pre-cut one so if you are planning ahead, buying a whole lettuce is a better option.
