Husband has a misplaced sense of humor. I told him I had an "exotic" salad for his lunch. He thought I said "erotic" and was expecting something fun and frisky. What am I going to to with that man? Made for Best of 2009 and goes straight to my tops 2010 list.

Great salad! Left off the eggs this time. The honey-mustard dressing was a nice change of pace for my family. Thanks!

Oh man this was good! I just loved the sweet tart dressing! I halved the recipe and used red leaf lettuce and iceberg instead of romaine. Thanks! Made for 123 Hit Wonders.
