This is very similar to a salad served at a neighborhood restaurant. I love the combination of the cheese, bacon and honey salad dressing. Prep time includes the overnight refrigeration of the salad dressing.
- 1⁄3 cup honey
- 2⁄3 cup sugar
- 1 teaspoon dry mustard
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 6 tablespoons cider vinegar
- 2 tablespoons lemon juice
- 1 cup vegetable oil
- 1 tablespoon celery seed
- romaine lettuce
- cheddar cheese, shredded
- bacon, fried, drained and cut in small pieces (Imitation bacon bits may be used)
- Mix the first eight ingredients.
- Refrigerate overnight.
- Add the shredded cheese and bacon bits to the Romain lettuce and toss.
- Top with the salad dressing.
This is absolutely delicious! It was my first try at making a home-made salad dressing (besides potato/slaw types). My favorite dressings have always been Creamy Cucumber Ranch and Western! I do believe you've converted me and now I will have to try making other varieties (in addition to this one of course). This is a keeper!! It was easy to make and even tasted great on plain old iceberg lettuce too! Thank you for sharing your recipe Merlot!
This salad is a KEEPER!!!It is fantastic!Very simple to make and soooo gooood.Thank you for this recipe.The dressing has a nice sweet/sour taste and the bacon and cheese in the salad was really great.I also added 1 clove of minced garlic to the dressing.I think it helped to round out the flavor.I also added some diced red onion and some garlic croutons to the lettuce,bacon and cheese salad.Very Good!!!
This is a great, simple salad. The dressing makes a very large amount, about 5-6 servings for me, and I like a lot of dressing on my salad. If you like your dressing more tangy than sweet, I would suggest adding a lot less sugar than the recipe recommends. I only added 1/3 cup of sugar, and it was still very sweet. Next time I think I will start with 2 tablespoons and work my way up. Other than that, the dressing had a great flavor. Thanks for the great recipe.
