This salad is great. It is similar to another that I like so I combined them. I added black olives, pepperoncini, and some pepperoni so I could eat it as a main dish. In the past I have made the dressing with apple cider vinegar but I love the taste of the red wine vinegar. Also, due to lack of ingredients I used garlic powder and ground mustard. Thanks for the recipe!

Very nice salad! I used a mix of salad leaves (all I had available), and instead of the breadcrumbs I used croutons. For the rest, I followed the recipe, but with no red wine vinegar left, I used balsamic, which was actually very good in this salad. Thanks!

Absolutely amazing! I used spinach since I didn't have romaine. I think the dressing might be good with other ingredients too. Thanks for sharing.
