This is one of our all time favorites! I agree with one of the other posters that it gets too much of an olive oil taste, so I use 1/3 cup canola oil and 1/4 cup olive oil which tuns out perfect every time!

Very easy to make, and very good. I add shredded provelone cheese to ours.

This is a fantastic salad. I made this often several years ago and forgot about it until I ran across it here. The only difference in this one and mine is I add a large clove of minced garlic to the dressing. Great recipe--thanks for posting!

This salad tastes exactly like Pasta House salad. I am going to take it to Thanksgiving dinner.

This is the best salad...we make it on our girl's trip and reserve the dressing to add each time we eat. That way we can have it all week! It is also great with the pre packaged Spring Mix.

Always a great salad to make that is well-known in the St. Louis area. I tend to buy the amount of lettuce I need (only romaine) and either double or triple the dressing recipe, since I make this mostly for parties. I use my judgement and gradually add the dressing as I'm mixing the salad, otherwise you can drown the salad. This method takes care of too much of an oily taste.

This was good! I used romano instead of the fine grated parm and it wasn't quite the same. And you really have to let it sit in the dressing to get the right flavor. I couldn't find pimentos either so did green olives w/ pimentos finely chopped. I used a bag of italian lettuce and about 1/2 the dressing with all the yummy artichokes.

This was a hit at my office holiday party! I forgot the onions and couldn't find pimentos at the store, but it was still good.

This is a very popular salad in my area and this is the best recipe I have found. I took to a Zaar friends home for a BBQ and it was well received. I live about an hour away so I prepped it ahead and mixed it right before dinner. Thanks for posting Bratty!!!
