The Basic Tossed Salad:

tossedsalad.jpg (703948 bytes)The main ingredient of any Tossed Salad is Lettuce.  To add variety and to enhance the flavor we suggest using several kinds, such as, Romaine, Red and/or Green Leaf, Chicory, Escarole, etc.  We usually keep several kinds on hand, washed and stored in the Veggie Drawer in the refrigerator.  To some people these types of lettuce have a slightly bitter flavor.  To sweeten the lettuce, we suggest shredding several Carrots and mixing (tossing) them into the lettuce mix.  We suggest adding some coarsely shredded Red Cabbage.  The combination of the red, orange and green colors adds to both the beauty and taste.

We also suggest adding any or all of the following: Spinach, Parsley, Scallions, Cucumbers, Red and/or Green Bell Peppers, Celery, Radishes, Napa Cabbage, Tomatoes, Broccoli, Cauliflower, fresh raw Beets (they're sweet and crunchy) and anything else your heart desires.

The above recipe is in keeping with God's creation intent (Genesis 1:29-31):  'Then God said, "I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food.  And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground-- everything that has the breath of life in it-- I give every green plant for food." And it was so.   God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.' (NIV)  Let no animal suffer or die that we may live!
