I threw this together, with my ingredients on hand.To take to a cookout at my friends home. Everyone loved it, so did I! Out of 17 people, 8 women asked for the recipe. The other 8 were the husbands!.....I am sure you will like it also. I love taking cold salads with NO MAYO to gatherings, and the colors look so pretty! There was no left overs. They also enjoyed my recipe on JAP "Carrot Banana Nut Bars" Nancy 6/5/13

    Shred the lettuce, as you would cabbage. One small head or 1/2 a large head. I use a plastic knife.. then your lettuce will not turn brown at the cut edges. Set aside.
