What You Need
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 1/2 tablespoons lemon juice
1/2 clove garlic - minced (crushed)
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
2 handfuls roughly torn romaine (Cos) lettuce leaves
2 fresh Roma tomatoes - cut into 1/2-inch rounds (you can also use regular tomatoes and cut them into wedges)
1/2 green pepper (capsicum) - julienned
1/4 small red onion - thinly sliced (you can vary this amount depending on how much you like raw red onions)
What To Do
1. Mix together the olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, salt and pepper in a small bowl.
2. Place the salad ingredients in a large bowl.
3. Pour the dressing over the salad and toss gently to combine just before serving.
Suggestions: There are lots of possible additions to this basic salad, but keep in mind that it should remain a simple and light salad to accompany a meal. Toss through some garlic-rubbed croutons or a handful of chopped toasted nuts (like walnuts, pine nuts or hazelnuts), finely chopped capers, olives, sun-dried tomatoes or chopped anchovies, or a small amount of shaved or crumbled cheese.
