1 head iceberg lettuce
1/2 head romaine lettuce
1 red onion (thinly sliced)
1 small can artichoke hearts in water (drained and crumbled into fourths)
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 tomato (diced)


4 tablespoons corn or vegetable oil
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
salt and pepper, to taste


In large bowl, combine the following: Break head of iceberg lettuce into quarters separating the layers. Break romaine lettuce into thirds. Add sliced onions, artichoke hearts, and grated parmesan. Toss and chill.

Pour dressing on a few minutes before serving--if you do it too far in advance the salad will wilt. Toss well before serving.
