I made this recipe several times during the RSC #11 contest. We really enjoyed the flavors together. I loved that this recipe furnished dressing in amounts that matched the salad. I so often have tons of dressing left to pitch out. Not the case here. I shredded the romaine and then followed the layout. The salad was pretty, quick to make, and made a perfect lunch. It would also be a nice side salad. I can't find blood oranges so subbed an orange. I also used walnuts in place of pine nuts after the first time. The dressing pairs with these ingredients nicely. I will definitely be using this recipe again & again! Thank you for a keeper!

4-This is a very nice salad. My only issue is placing everything on a leaf of romaine. I did take several leaves and tore them into bite size pieces. Good luck in RSC #11.
