    Cookgirl's Note:

    Copycat recipe from Annabelle's Bar and Bistro in San Fransisco, California. My husband enjoyed this protein rich salad while there for a convention recently. (He even texted the recipe ingredients to me between bites! What a guy!) If little gem lettuce is not available, use an equal amount of butter lettuce and romaine. For a main dish meal, add grilled chicken or turkey. I am positively certain you can prepare this at home for much less than what the restaurant charges: US15 dollars.
