Lettuce Salad with Lemon Sesame Dressing

Come on a journey. You step into a local grocery store and find a product for 3 for $x on sale, how many of them do you buy?

*There is no breakdown price stated in case you just buy one.

*There is no notice of “must buy 3 to get the sales price” in a small, tiny font. 


If you answer buying 3, you are my friend. Now, I have you as friend and 3 heads of huge iceberg lettuce. I wonder how long they can last fresh. Maybe 1 week? I have to take advantage of the sales price, so let’s enjoy it with my delicious homemade lemon sesame dressing!

Pretty easy but incredibly delicious! Citrus’ zesty and vibrant flavor with toasted sesame oil are definitely good partners, and sprinkled crushed chili gives a little kick too! 

Now I have 2 and ¾ heads of lettuce. Cross fingers in my battle with lettuce challenge!
