How To Make Nigerian Local Lettuce Salad 1

I am back with another recipe. Today I will be telling you how to make Nigerian Local Lettuce Salad.

Lettuce Salad is really tasty, a source of fiber and cellulose which aids in digestion. A combination of the ingredients provides vitamins to the body.

I love the way it looks when it’s all mixed. The color combination is so beautiful and natural.

Let’s start Mixing.


  • 2 stalks of Lettuce
  • 6 pieces of Fresh Tomatoes
  • 1 medium size Onion
  • 2 tins of Kuli Kuli Powder (German Stone)
  • 3 pieces of Pepper
  • 2 Seasoning Cubes
  • Salt


Pick the Lettuce leaves from its stalk and put in a bowl.

Add some salt and water and leave it for 2 minutes (this is a natural way to kill germs without needing to cook). Wash it twice without salt after the 2 minutes is up. This is to get rid of the salty taste.
