Basic Mixed Green Salad

Serving Size : 50

7 pounds iceberg lettuce
3 pounds leaf lettuce (bibb or romaine)
1 1/4 quarts French dressing or oil and vinegar or Italian dressing

Cut or tear lettuce and other greens into bite-size pieces. (Use sharp steel-bladed knife if greens are cut.)

Just before serving, toss lightly with dressing, or portion greens into individual salad bowls, 3 oz per bowl, and serve with choice of dressings.

"10 pounds"

NOTES : Any combination of salad greens may be used. For contrast, mix dark greens with light, crisp with tender, and smooth leaves with curly. With pale iceberg lettuce, use dark green spinach, romaine, curly endive, or red-tipped leaf lettuce.
If serving on a salad bar, place greens in a large bowl and offer choice of dressing and garnishes.
