Paneer Lettuce Salad

Try Lettuce with fresh cottage cheese for a tasty twist to your usual salad.

  • 1 pack Boston Lettuce
  • 1 medium onion sliced
  • ½ Red Bell Pepper sliced
  • Fresh Paneer chunks (Cottage cheese)
  • ½ tsp Black Pepper powder
  • 1 tsp Salad Supreme Seasoning
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • Salt to taste
  • 2 tbsp olive oil

  • Mix all the ingredients and serve chilled.

Note: Lettuce is a delicate vegetable and great care should be taken when selecting and storing. When selecting your leaves, be sure that they are fresh and crisp, with no signs of wilting or dark spots or edges.

Do You Know?
Lettuce is a fat free, low calorie food. It is a valuable source of vitamin A and folic acid. Lactucarium (or “Lettuce Opium”) is a mild opiate-like substance that is contained in all types of lettuce. Both the Romans and Egyptians took advantage of this property eating lettuce at the end of a meal to induce sleep.
