Garden Salad

We love this Salad with Lasagna. Make sure the veggies used here are as fresh as possible.

Taste the Romaine lettuce before buying and better not to buy when the weather is hot, Romaine lettuce turns bitter in hot weather. Look for closely bunched ones.

(Optional) For Garnish:

Sesame seeds – 1 tsp toasted (optional)
