      This was a very good, flavorful salad. I made a few minor alterations to speed up preparation: I used a bag of chopped hearts of romaine, pre-shredded carrots, and built it in a large salad bowl. I also used only a few slices of red onion as my onion was huge. I layered romaine, carrot shreds, broccoli florets, red onion, anchovies, and shredded cheese (I used Emantaler). I poured dressing over the salad, and left some for people to add if they wanted it more heavily dressed. The salad had a bold flavor that paired well with our grilled steaks. The dressing complemented the flavors very well; I reduced the zest a little (I was hurrying), but I think next time I'll use the full amount. All in all, DH & I enjoyed this very much (DS less so, but what can you expect from a 5yo?). Thanks so much for posting, Hill Family! Made for Everyday is a Holiday tag game.
