Most of the time I forget lettuce is in the fridge. I've seen far more gone by lettuce in the trash than fresh lettuce on my plate. How to get green leafy vegetables into my menu was a problem. Kale, spinach, mustard greens and such are for a more solid meal and take time to prepare. Lettuce is easy just raw, but salad can also take time to prepare. A solution for me has been to have lettuce with dressing, and leave it at that.
Then I thought...restaurants serve lettuce as garnish all sorts of meals. Why not do the same?
Whala! An omelet on a bed of lettuce with light dripping of dressing and/or ketchup.
I grew up with ketchup on eggs. I think it might be an East Coast thing.
The lettuce is almost gone, and to my surprise, the meal feels fancier, and the extra crunch is quite nice.
