Lettuce Salad with Cucumber and Tomatoes

This is my easy, go-to salad which can be prepared in a jiffy. I prepare salads 2 to 3 times a week. It is something which we always want along with our main course. Salads are usually done with whatever vegetables are available in your garden. But, in this case, it’s my fridge. I don’t have a garden to grow my own vegetables, but one day I will.

This is my version of Lettuce salad, which can be prepared with ingredients already available in your fridge. It does not require any fancy dressings. Lemon juice, olive oil, salt, and pepper is all you need.

So let’s get started.
