Mom’s Salad, Basic

I’ve just recently realized that my mom has some pretty unique and inspiring recipes.  One of which is a classic that I’m sharing with you here:

mom's salad



  • romaine lettuce
  • jazz apple
  • celery
  • walnuts
  • fresh dill (optional, and not always present)

Salad Dressing (measurements are more like guidelines)

  • ~1/2 cup Simply Lemonade brand lemonade
  • ~3-4 tbsp olive oil
  • ~1/4  tsp ground cumin (optional)

*in the picture you will notice a piece of broiled steak which, though not part of the salad, always accompanies any meal at my mom’s house.

This is usually a lunchtime salad; a dinnertime salad would have many more exotic ingredients like tarragon or some kind of tiny leek that I don’t know the name of and you can only find at the Persian store. More to come on that…
