Sweet and Sour Lettuce Salad (Parve)

Gentler than sauerkraut, but also dresses up meat sandwiches or makes a flavorful side dish.

Prep Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 15 minutes


  • 1 round head lettuce
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 3 Tablespoons sugar
  • 6 Tablespoons vinegar


  • Separate and wash lettuce leaves. Place in large bowl.
  • In a separate bowl, mix water, vinegar, sugar, and salt. The mixture can be adjusted a bit according to your taste.
  • Pour over lettuce. Use your hands to mix the lettuce well with the liquid.
  • Let sit for 20-30 minutes at room temperature. Refrigerate.

NOTE: The salad tastes better after a day of sitting in the refrigerator.
