This simple iceberg lettuce salad is perfect with pasta, pizza or wings! And it is ready in minutes!


Units Scale

1 c giardiniera vegetables, store-bought or homemade

1/4 c of brine from above

1 T Dijon mustard

2 T mayonnaise

1 large head of Iceberg lettuce (outer leaves removed and cored), sliced into approzimately 1 1/2″ rounds

Fresh ground black pepper

Other Toppings are optional but sliced onion, blue cheese crumbles, cherry tomatoes or pickle peppers are all good, too!


To make the dressing, whisk together the giardiniera brine, mustard and mayonnaise.

Stir in the giardiniera vegetables. Taste for salt, pepper and maybe vinegar or red pepper flakes.

Place the rounds of lettuce on plates. Top with the dressing and other toppings.
