This is my husband's favorite salad! It is very elegant - perfect for a dinner party or even a candlelight dinner for two! I recommend using only half of the salad dresssing, and saving the rest for later.

I made this salad for the 2 of us, I LOVED it! Just be careful adding the entire amount dressing (which ROCKS) to the lettuce, IT is strong and may overpower. Just drizzle as you go. YUM!

Great salad! So simple and flavorful. I agree with Chicagoland Chef du Jour that dressing should just be drizzled, I used a little too much. I'm looking forward to making this again. Thanks for posting the recipe.
