2 to 3 leaves romaine lettuce, broken into bite-size pieces
1/2 carrot, peeled into ribbons
5 or 6 cherry or grape tomatoes, halved
1 to 2 tablespoons sunflower seeds
1/4 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
Ranch dressing (see below)
Combine lettuce and carrot ribbons in one container; the other ingredients will travel best if kept separate and combined just before eating.
