First: when you buy a head of lettuce, as soon as you get it home, wash, dry and refrigerate. That way you have one step up on salad making, and it’s a sinch to grab some lettuce to tuck into a sandwich or whatever.
Ingredients — on top of lettuce:
Cauliflower, raw, cut up into florets
Protein: boiled shrimp, hard-boiled eggs, or poached chicken breast
Green beans, par-boiled (boiled 2 minutes in salted water)
Cucumber — I like to partially peel, cut in half lengthwise and scoop out seeds with a spoon, and then cut into half-moon slices.
Pepitas sprinkled on top are a nice addition.

And here’s the buttermilk vinaigrette dressing I love.
