Last Saturday I went to a friend’s house to watch the Nebraska-Ohio State game and to have dinner. I volunteered to bring salad, and brought my all-time favorite salad.
I love these salads because you can customize the ingredients and they look so cute! They also can be made ahead, which makes them perfect for dinner parties.
You need a small tumbler glass to get you started. I bought plastic ones at Target to use just for this dish. Add a small amount of dressing to the bottom of the glass. I always add a garlicky vinaigrette, but you really could add anything you like!
I also always add lots of COLORS to the salad. That’s what makes it look great from the side! For this batch, I used cucumbers, yellow bell peppers, sliced grape tomatoes, and red onions + lettuce of course.
Once you’ve added all your chopped veggies, it’s time to add the lettuce. I’m a HUGE fan of butter lettuce these days (AKA Bibb), so that’s what I used for this salad!
I wrapped up these little guys with plastic wrap and kept them in the fridge until it was party time. I also always make an extra one to eat another day!When you’re ready to eat your salad, grab a plate, and get ready to pour out all the tasty ingredients!
