Instructions Checklist
  • Serve in small tumblers or cups with lemon wedges, if desired. Pass remaining dressing, if desired.

Teaching Notes:

Before chopping lettuce, wash lettuce and remove excess water from leaves by patting dry with paper towels. Salad dressing clings better to dry lettuce.

*Shocking Vegetables:

Bring a saucepan half filled with water to a boil. Carefully add vegetables and cook 3 minutes (do not wait for water to return to boil to start timing). Drain in colander and immediately add to a bowl of ice water to halt cooking. Drain well before using.
