Growing up, every Sunday after church, the whole extended family would gather at our house where Granny Sandy (my Mama) would fry up chicken with all the fixins. One of the fixins was often this simple, tasty salad that easily takes the place of a traditional coleslaw.

Ingredients

Add to Grocery List

  • 1
    head of iceburg lettuce
  • 1/2 c
    sweet onion (yellow, red or white)
  • 4 oz
    medium cheddar cheese (e.g., colby longhorn)
  • 1/2 c
    miracle whip salad dressing
  • 1/4 tsp
    salt and pepper
  • 1/2 tsp
    white vinegar
  • 1 Tbsp
    sugar

How to Make Granny Sandy's Simple Salad

Step-by-Step

  1. Clean the lettuce and core it, then either tear or shred it into strips or bite-sized pieces; place in salad bowl.
  2. Dice onion into very small pieces and add to lettuce.
  3. Cut cheddar cheese into very small cubes(do not shred) and add to lettuce.
  4. In a separate small bowl, mix salad dressing, salt, pepper, vinegar and sugar. Mix well until sugar is dissolved and dressing is smooth and creamy.
  5. Refrigerate both bowls. Right before serving, add dressing to lettuce and toss well. If salad appears a little "dry", make a little more dressing and add, as required.
  6. NOTE: If you just can't bring yourself to use Miracle Whip, then substitute mayonnaise, but add an extra tablespoon of sugar.
