DIRECTIONS

  • Wash romaine and cut into bite size pieces.
  • Roll up in a clean dry towel and refrigerate for several hours.
  • (This makes the lettuce super crisp) Slice the green onion into thin rings.
  • Chop the broccoli, stems and flowers, into small pieces.
  • Break the ramen noodles up into small pieces.
  • (I leave it in the bag and whack it with a kitchen mallet.) Remove flavor envelope from ramen packet and throw away.
  • Melt butter in a large deep skillet.
  • Add ramen noodles and walnuts and stir and cook over medium heat until light brown.
  • Be sure to watch carefully and stir constantly- they will burn easily.
  • Turn out onto a double thickness of paper towels and cool.
  • Put romaine into a LARGE bowl and add broccoli, onions, ramen noodles and walnuts.
  • Toss.
  • Mix dressing ingredients together and add to salad.
  • You make not want to use it all- I don't but some people like"wetter" salads than I do.
  • Use your own taste as a guideline.
