This is a very simple salad that can be put together in less then 5 minutes, especially if you are using packaged lettuce leaves. You can make this salad with any kind of lettuce – the picture above shows romaine lettuce.
Cherry tomatoes are a great addition to simple salads like this. Cherry tomatoes are sweeter and have less liquid and seeds inside than regular tomatoes. Another advantage of cherry tomatoes over regular tomatoes is the fact that you don’t have to chop them – you can just eat them whole. Or if you prefer, you can slice the cherry tomatoes in half.
This easy salad is really delicious!

Salt and pepper to taste
In a cup, whisk olive oil and lemon juice (3 parts of oil to 1 part of vinegar) – this is the dressing for the salad.
