Simple Italian Salad


Tonight husband and I are having a “gourmet comfort food” night. So since our main dish is a Brie and Fig grilled cheese sandwich with a side of scratch tomato soup, we needed something healthy. And  simple. So here is my basic but tasty Italian Salad


Simple Italian Salad

4 servings


  • 8 leaves of Romaine lettuce
  • 3/4 of a red bell pepper
  • 3/4 of a  cucumber
  • 1 large carrot, peeled into ribbons (use your potato peeler. Works perfectly)
  • 1 can black olives (or calamata olives, if you prefer)


  • chop the lettuce into bite sized pieces
  • chop other ingredients into desired sized pieces
  • mix in a bowl

I topped  this off with some red wine vinegar, but you can use any dressing you want. Also, cheese would be grand wit h this, but considering all the wonderful but super unhealthy cheese that’s comprising our main dish, I skipped it in the salad. Enjoy!
