Is it just me or are there more and more lettuces and other greens at the grocery store lately? There are so many to choose from and at my grocery store they have a wide variety of organic pre-washed and ready to eat lettuce which cuts down on prep time for me. For this salad I went with simple baby spinach (always a favorite) and baby romaine. You could choose which ever greens that you like. I bet that peppery arugula would be wonderful.
