Assemble the salad
- On a large plate, lay out the lettuce salad leaves. You can cut them in halves if the leaves are too large.Distribute the sauce evenly over the lettuce leaves. Add thinly sliced red onion on top and serve. (We prefer mincing the onion with hands before serving so that it starts juicing and becomes softer.)Enjoy it as an appetizer or try it with these tempting beef kebabs - they will make a perfect duo for your summer grill party.
