Depending on how fast you can chop and dice your vegetables, this tasty iceberg lettuce salad can be fixed in as little as 20 minutes or even less. Enjoy it with your favorite mashed potatoes and meat dish, or any other meal that you like. It’s perfect on it’s own as a snack in between meals as well.
This recipe makes a LOT, which makes it great for summer barbecues, potlucks and large family dinners. And it goes with just about anything and everything else that is brought to the table.
It’s also perfect for making ahead for something quick during the week. The only thing is that the lettuce wilts easy, so you might want to chop and store all vegetables in separate containers. Then simply mix together desired amounts when you are ready to sit down and eat.
Use either green or black olives.I used green … and a whole cup of em! If you’re not a huge fan of olives you can always go less. But I enjoy taste, especially in salads.
The camu dried cranberries are simply regular cranberries with camu powder. Thus, they are a darker shade and more nutritious. However, regular dried cranberries are just as good here. And together with the olives and sea salt, they eliminate the need for a dressing. But, you can always add a light dressing if you so choose.
