    This salad was devoured in a very short time. The ingredients are splendid, especially the sugared almonds. I used just a splash of the very good dressing, however, because I agree that using all of it would have drowned all those wonderful salad thingys.

    Really good stuff! I loved the almond slivers this way, super easy too!

    I doubled the recipe, and thought the dressing was too abundant. I`m sure I will make this again, but will use half the amount of dressing, as once the lettuce wilts into it, the result is quite the soupy mess! Still a great recipe. I followed it exactly, something I rarely do! :)

    This salad was REALLY good. The dressing was the right amount of sweetness and I particularly enjoyed the crunch of the celery. I made this at the last minute and it turned out to be the best part of the meal! Thanks Donna, for posting.<br/>Roxygirl

    This is so similar to a recipe my mother makes, but her's has 3 dashes of Tabasco in the dressing and uses all Romain Lettuce. It is a GREAT salad recipe. Thanks for posting it.
