How To Make A Delicious Salad With No Lettuce Whatsoever (PHOTOS)

We've all done it -- you're eating a salad and you find yourself digging out all the good stuff and leaving the lettuce to wilt in the leftover dressing. We've got nothing against lettuce, but sometimes the other stuff is more interesting and we have to be true to our stomach's desires.

If you find yourself wasting all of your lettuce time and again, it might be time that you start making salads with no lettuce. Like, none at all. Just vegetables, dressing, maybe a grain or a cheese and the sweet taste of freedom.

Now get out there and eat your vegetables.
