Italian salad

I have never chopped lettuce finely. I use to tare with my hand. When I had lunch at my friend's home she chopped so finely, I love the idea and asked for the recipe. Then I changed a little and got this wonderful salad. Increase or reduce the vegetables of your choice.


  • Lettuce - 2 cup, finely chopped
  • Cucumber - 1 cup, finely chopped
  • Carrot - 1 cup, shredded
  • Color peppers - 1/4 cup, finely chopped
  • Boiled peanuts - 1/4 cup
  • Corn - 1/4 cup
  • Cilantro - 1/4 cup, finely chopped
  • Walnuts - 1 tbsp, optional
  • Juice of any pickle - 2 tbsp or Lemon juice
For dressing:
  • Olive oil - 1/4 cup
  • Onion - 1, small
  • Scallions - 1 tbsp, finely chopped
  • Italian seasoning - 1 tsp
  • Chilly flakes - 1/4 tsp
  • Pepper - as per taste
  • Salt - as per taste


Mix all the ingredients given for dressing. Let it marinate overnite(in refrigerator) or for 4 hours. If using frozen corn, rinse and let it boil with salt for 2 minutes or till soft.
Chop all the vegetables finely. Mix cucumber, color peppers, carrot and cilantro. Add the corn and peanuts without water. Make sure you drain the water completely before adding to the salad.
Add the juice of pickle or lemon juice and mix gently. While serving mix the dressing. Combine well.

Enjoy the great filling and healthy salad.
  • I used the olive marinated vinegar, you can use cucumber or jalapeno pickles too.
