Updated on July 25, 2017

Baby Lettuce Mixed Salad & Healthy Dressings

Practically everyone knows that we are to eat our veggies. But what you may not know is that healthy green salads using the baby varieties can help you meet the daily requirements your body needs.

By using a good selection of tender baby leaf lettuces combined with other vegetables and fruits, you will maintain good health and eating habits while satisfying all your taste buds.

Who says salads have to be boring? I've included my favorite Baby lettuce combination salad for you. It is packed with flavor and is a hearty meal.

      I love baby leaf and hardly eat lettuce. When I eat lettuce, it's as if I'm eating air.

      We always have lettuce on the table with other greens as well. I have learned in Cambodia to use lettuce leaves to wrap whatever I eat and put a few other greens with it. So, even if I am lazy to make a salad, I have all the greens I need.

      Like this lens, it's amazing what you can make for a meal if you have a lettuce, or if a baby lettuce i like eating them in a sandwich on a hot summers day. Thank for sharing. Blessed.
