This was very good. Next time I would use less oil, but would not change anything else. I will be making this again for meals.

Fantastic recipe. I loved the toasted almonds. Of course, I didn't have romain lettuce, so I cheated and used the prepackaged lettuce mix. If it is any better using the romain, I don't know if I could stand it.

I made this recipe exactly as written with the exception of omitting the optional items. It was very good and I'm sure I'll be making it often.
