This salad was easy & quite good. The star of the recipe is the dressing! We loved that. I will be making more of the dressing to keep in the fridge for other salads. Thanks for sharing!

I took this to a dinner party and I was disappointed, although the guests said it was good. Two pounds of Romaine is WAY too much for this light dressing. I made it exactly as stated, but I found it bland. Two pounds is a LOT of lettuce. It looked like the proper amount of lettuce after one pound and I should have stopped there. Also, with that amount of lettuce, it should have had more bacon and onion. I even added a bit of oregano and extra black pepper, and a dash of hot sauce, but it was bland. I think one and a half thin hearts of romaine would be perfect.

I enjoyed this salad very much. I scaled it carefully for a smaller serving, but thought the proportions were just right. Thank you very much for sharing this recipe with us. I used Favorite Croutons #92923, posted by Jim in Washington, to make the croutons.
