Tirana's Romaine Salad

This is a very simple salad, not particularly exciting, but it provided a good, light, contrast to the mint qofte with which I served it. I can't say much more about this salad, but I should note that there was none left. In Albania, this salad is often served at local restaurants as an appetizer.
