Thank you for this recipe. It sounds great. Most fresh salad recipes that I have found always call for an ingredient that is unique just to their area.

Yeah! A salad recipe finally that calls for Iceburg Lettuce!!!

This one from Rachael Ray looks pretty good: Recipes : Iceberg Salad with Shrimp : Food Network

She puts shrimp and a Russian-like dressing made with cocktail sauce on iceberg wedges.

I see no reason why you couldn't make ANY salad with iceburg lettuce if that's what you like.

Granted, cesar salad was originally made with romaine lettuce, but if you like the dressing and prefer iceburg, go for it.

StirBlue,
we've been using a lot more iceberg lately..I usually cut it in a large chop, easier to eat that way My DH loves it with thousand island dressing that I make with the addition of chopped hard cooked eggs,avocado,vidalia onion and tiny grape tomatoes..My girls love it with a chunky blue cheese dressing with added chopped up anchovies and homemade crutons..This can be done with a wedge of iceberg as well..There are so many nice dressings to put over iceberg and wonderful things to dress it up. It's fun thinking of new ways to serve it.

salads with out lettuce

Salads can be made without lettuce.Normally in my place we get icebur lettuce.Even Cesar salad can be made with iceburg.
There are lots of salad can be made with out lettuce.They are Hummus,Labanum,Fattous,Tabula-are Arabian Starter.Some italian Starters dont use more lettuce.Iceburg lettuce are good for heat patients,

Recipe:Hummus
Hummus can be mabe with chick peas,Soak it & boil it.Make a paste out of chick peas,garlic,oliveoil,seasoning are mixed togather and set in a mould,garnish with paprika powder,parsley.

I like iceberg, but use romaine most of the time because it has more food value. Iceberg has almost no food value, but romaine has a good bit of calcium. I do prefer iceberg on some sandwiches. Just my opinion.

There is no mayonnaise in the dressing for a Caesar Salad. It's garlic, anchovies, egg yolk, olive oil, salt and pepper. the mixture emulsifies into a "sort-of" mayonnaise, but you don't put mayonnaise in.

Try it that way sometime. It's MUCH lighter than using already prepared mayo.

Traditionally, Italians serve the salad AFTER the meal, not as an appetizer. Antipasti would be the appetizer. Now, Italian RESTAURANTS will serve you a salad first, but that's only to keep you busy while they cook your entrée.

I don't know if you read the What's For Supper threads, but as a personal trainer, senior fitness instructor, and sports nutirtionist, I need to control my weight, so salad quite often IS my meal!

RE: Iceburg lettuce. Although most traditional salad greens have little nutritional value, Iceberg lettuce has none whatsoever, and just like celery, you consume more calories eating it than it contains. IMO, it is also lacking in flavor. I prefer romaine, raddichio, escerole, arugula, baby spinach, red curly, and green curly, or any combination of the above.

For some reason people have gotten very uppity about iceberg. I still like it and use it whenever I need the crunch. Plus I love it on my burger.
