I don’t know about you but even though 2020 has not been the best of years and we have all been under Covid 19 worries and restrictions the days, weeks and months have still gone by so quickly. Christmas is now a matter of weeks away so with that in mind I’m sharing three different salad ideas which you may like to serve over the holiday season.

250 grams mixed lettuce leaf

½ small red onion finely sliced
