There is something deeply satisfying about the watery crunch of iceberg lettuce that brings me back to my childhood;  a time when a salad was always iceberg  lettuce, and a fancy salad was a wedge of iceberg lettuce.  Topped with 1000 Island dressing, of course.

Many folks believe that iceberg is one of the least-nutritious of the lettuces, but every now and again, I want that crunch.  So… I figure if I add a few nice nutritional things to the salad, I break even.

Tonight it was roasted vegetables – zucchini, broccolini, mushrooms, yellow bell peppers, leftover flank steak, and a homemade 1000 Island dressing.  And a couple of cherry pepper shooters.

I also made a few slices of garlic toast.  I burned it – but we ate it, anyway.  It wasn’t totally and completely charred.
