  1. 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!
  2. 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.
  3. This is the best salad! My family loves it. My kids even gobbled it up and had seconds which is unusual! lol! Our favorite dressing to have with it is the homemade Good Season's Italian.
  4. 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 Recipe #92923 #92923, posted by Jim in Washington, to make the croutons.
  5. This was a nice, refreshing salad that had a very natural flavor. I loved the combination o fingredients. Next time I will reduce the mozzarella by about 1/2 and add a few croutons. Overall it was delish! Made for Fall PAC 2008.


I'm a very busy mother of two, 1 of them being autistic, hence the name "autism mommy". Cooking is my passion, I absolutely love it and am always looking for new recipes. When my son wakes around 2 a.m. because of the autism, I often start cooking so that I don't kill him!!! His school knows when he hasn't slept because there are always goodies waiting for them still warm from the oven first thing in the morning!!!<img src="" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket">
