Additional Information

Slash the fat to just 4 grams per serving by using fat-free mayonnaise instead of reduced-fat.

To shred romaine lettuce, after washing and drying leaves, stack a pile of leaves on a cutting board. With a sharp knife, cut leaves crosswise into thin strips. Measure 4 cups lightly packed shreds for this salad.
