Mother's Lettuce Tomato Chop Salad {Granny's Recipe}

8:30 AM
Lettuce Tomato Chop Salad when you want a go-to salad, and you want one that has simple ingredients and as few as possible, lettuce, tomatoes and mayonnaise or miracle whip.  That's it! 

For my go to salad, I always think of my Mother's Lettuce Tomato Chop Salad.  I served this salad with our meatloaf we had a couple of weeks ago.

I grew up eating this salad mostly in the summer when the tomatoes were plentiful, but with fresh tomatoes readily available in the grocery store, that is not the case now!

Mother chopped up iceberg lettuce, fresh tomatoes, and folded them all together with a cup of Miracle Whip.  I don't know if you have a liken for Miracle Whip or not, but growing up, I wouldn't use anything else.  Today is another story, with my husband being a fan of mayonnaise, I have switched over.

There is just something about this salad, though, that on occasion will call me back to making it using Miracle Whip :)
