29. Cos Salad

Cos salad (need I say is another versatile dish?) can have as many or as little ingredients in it.
It uses cos lettuce, a Mediterranean long lettuce, is distinct for its crunchiness.
No quantities are specified in the ingredient list because, really, you can play around to whatever suits your tastes. The dressing is made at the bottom of the bowl, and the lettuce is shredded and piled on top.
Covered with cling film and refrigerated, the salad may be made a day ahead.
When serving, simply toss the salad, and presto!


salt & pepper
dried basil
powdered garlic
lemon juice
olive oil
onion, quartered, sliced
cos lettuce, roughly shredded


Mix the salt, pepper, basil, garlic, lemon juice, and olive oil at the bottom of a salad bowl.
Pile the coarsely shredded lettuce leaves on top. Do not toss.
Cover with cling film and refrigerate up to a day before serving.
When serving, toss well and serve.
