Today, we are making our version of this delicious salad. Feel free to make it this way, or just use the dressing portion of this instructable.
Step 1: Ingredients.
Optional: Shredded Carrots
1 Cup White Sugar
1/2 Cup Vinegar (either white or apple cider)
3/4 Cup Vegetable Oil
1/2 tsp. Black Pepper
1/2 tsp. Onion Powder
1 tsp. Dry Ground Mustard
1 tsp. Salt
1 tsp. Sesame Seeds.
Step 2: Make the Dressing.
Stir constantly as you bring it to a boil then immediately remove from heat and add the sesame seeds.
Allow the dressing to cool and then store it in the container of your choice.
Note: You absolutely, positively must watch the pot while you are heating or it will boil over. You have been warned!
Note: Keep in mind, that this dressing will separate like most oil/vinegar mixtures, so you must shake it before you use it.
Step 3: Chop That Lettuce
Grasp the lettuce firmly and drive it into you cutting board. This will break the heart loose. Discard the heart.
Peel off a few of the outer layers until you reach the clean lettuce.
Cut it in halve, then 1/4's, chopping until it is the size you want.
Place it in the container you want to serve it in and chill it until you are ready to serve.
Note: If you compost, the lettuce waste will make an excellent addition to your compost heap.
Step 4: Mix It and Eat It.
Serve it up and enjoy.
Keep in mind, you are free to add as many ingredients as you like to make this a perfect salad, I simply chose to keep it as close as possible to what they serve in the restaurant.
