Tossed lettuce, Hungarian style

I make salads all the time, but sometimes I get carried away with making such huge concoctions with so many ingredients that it almost distracts from the meal rather than adds to it! This is the most simple salad that is so refreshing and light. It really is a great starter for absolutely any meal. And, all you need is cucumbers & lettuce! How easy is that? :)
