Description

Quick easy homemade garden salad is simple and delicious. Ready in minutes, it's loaded with crisp leafy greens, fresh garden veggies, and crunchy croutons.


Ingredients

  • 1 head romaine lettucechopped
  • 1 cup purple cabbage, chopped
  • 1 cup grape tomatoes, halved
  • 3 radishes, thinly sliced
  • 1 medium carrot, julienned or shredded
  • 1 Persian cucumber, sliced
  • 1/4 red onion, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup seasoned croutons
  • 1/4 cup salad dressing (try Italian dressing, Greek salad dressing, or ranch dressing)

Instructions

  1. In a large mixing bowl or serving plate, combine romaine lettuce, cabbage, grape tomatoes, radishes, carrot, cucumber, and red onion.
  2. Pour salad dressing on top and toss to combine. Top with croutons and serve.

Notes

How to store: If you’re not going to eat your salad right away, try to finish the croutons before storing as they will get mushy. Also, hold off on adding any dressing that contains vinegar. The dressing will make the greens soft, so it’s best to store them separately. Store the salad in the refrigerator for up to 3 days in an airtight container.

Make ahead instructions: To make this salad ahead of time, I would suggest prepping the vegetables and storing in an airtight container without the dressing or croutons. When ready to serve, add croutons and toss in the dressing.
