    Manami's Note:

    "This salad from Thomas Keller's family-style restaurant, Ad Hoc, in Yountville, California, is a twist on the quintessential American combination of iceberg lettuce, tomato wedges and packaged bacon bits with a mayonnaise dressing. Only the iceberg lettuce wedges stay the same: The tomatoes are oven-roasted, the bacon is cut extra thick and the buttermilk dressing is spiked with chives, mint and parsley." This salad still is one of my favorites and this take on it is delicious! Food & Wine Magazine, October 2007 edition, Entertaining Napa Style. Have not allowed for cooling or chilling time.
