Five star dressing! Easy to make entree salad. Next time I will use half the amount of meat.

Wow! This isn't a salad, it's a meal! Do delicious! I made exactly as posted, with all romaine and used all the meats and cheeses as posted. As a previous reviewer stated, I will make sure I double this dressing, because I could just eat it with a spoon!!! Salty, but soooo delicious. I had this tonight when the heat index was 115....I'll try and make it home tomorrow at lunch and throw another salad together so I can post a pic. This recipe certainly deserves one. It is delicious! Made for PRMR tag game.

Wow! What a great idea turning one of my fav sandwiches into a nice (somewhat light) salad (not so much bread). Brilliant idea! I made this for me and hubbys lunch yesterday, and it was fabulous. (I will post a picture as soon as I can get in uploaded from hubby's cellphone). I already had homemade croutons on hand, so it made assembly even quicker. I halved the recipe for just the 2 of us. Next time I will double the dressing to keep on hand in a jar in the fridge! I also used a pre-packged bag of mixed salad greens. We both enjoyed it very much. Thank you for posting. (Made for PRMR)
