Red Lettuce and Red Vinegar

There is something so refreshing about a simple green salad. I often enjoy one before a heavier meal such as pasta, or sometimes if I’m watching what I eat closely, I add sauteed mushrooms or a protein. Either way, there is no reason you won’t feel light, energized, and happy after devouring this salad.
