Lettuces are some of the easiest vegetables to start from seeds and grow at home. When I had a vegetable garden from 2013-2015 I grew several varieties of lettuce and endive.
After a tornado razed everything in 2013, I pretty much gave up on gardening and since then I've been limited to store-bought lettuces and lettuce mixtures.

Add whatever you like. I often use cheese, nuts, berries a.o. fruits.
Add salad dressing last of all. Green salads keep better when dry.
