This is quick and easy salad that is a little more exotic than a regular lettuce salad but not as heavy as a Caesar or Greek Salad.
Is a great for a brown bag lunch (romaine lettuce tolerates heat or lack of refrigeration better than regular lettuce) or when serving with pasta dishes for dinner.
Rinse the lettuce in cold water and tear into bite sized pieces into large salad bowl.
In another bowl, mix the Sunflower Seeds, Shredded Cheddar Cheese and Grated Romano together.
Pour this mixture on top of the lettuce and toss until mixed.
If you want you can add the Lite Ranch Dressing, toss in and serve or leave it off and put it into a serving bowl an d any dressing you like could be poured after the salad is served by the individual diners.
5 min prep SERVES 2 -3
Cost: Depends on the cost of the Hearts of Romaine lettuce, but generally this would be around $2.50-$3.50 or under a $1 a person per serving.
