Describing the perfect salad is hard to do because there are so many different ingredients that go with one item and not another and sometimes some of the family does not care for the same things others do. There is no problem with this salad, which is resplendent with a variety of delicious flavors and textures. Iceberg lettuce is always a favorite and you can choose to make your own croutons or get a ready-made pack of seasoned bread cubes.

It is an interesting experience to shave cheese, but it offers the best way to get those thin slices that arrange themselves into elegant curls and add beauty to your creating. Green olives stuffed with pimento have a delightful flavor and will add a great variety to today’s special salad. Whether the salad is an appetizer, side dish or the main feature for lunch or dinner, it offers many options to get the family interested in mealtime instead of habitual fast food fare.

In a pinch, a salad can be put together quickly and still look together in elegance and presentation. It is not even a requirement to include tomatoes or lettuce, as you can use greens like spinach, if desired, and add olives, garbanzo beans, or kidney beans for variety and color. Even jello salad is a great option to serve before, during or after the meal. Always use the freshest produce possible to get the maximum flavor from the ingredients. You will be pleased to discover how much fun it can be to prepare different salad recipes for yourself or the family.

  3. Rinse the sprigs of parsley and break into separate pieces (refer to the picture). Set aside.
  4. Open the jar of green olives.
  5. Divide the lettuce between 4 salad plates or bowls and scatter 4 to 6 green olives on each plate.
