To be honest, this is the first time I am buying lettuce in my life for salad. No one at home is salad person, so it is very very rare I make salad. I love salad, but only if someone assembles for me. Also during this period of time, was really skeptical to try something raw/ uncooked. But since we have to start living with the given conditions, I bought the ingredients and tried this salad.
You can try whenever the condition is over, just posting here as I promised to post the winning recipe. Just take extra precautions by cleaning thoroughly. Especially the lettuce leaves. The leaves have to be taken out separately and cleaned with extra care so that all gets super clean. Also it is important to keep the cutting boars we use also germ free.

Vegetable crunchy salad method
- Clean the vegetbales well before using in the salad. I use sea salt + vinegar water to soak the veggies for 15 mins. Make sure to use a clean chopping board too.
