Ok – this is the BEST SALAD EVER! My sweet friend Lauren made this salad at a dinner for our sweet Bible study group. We were all blown away at the amazing taste! She informed us she made her own salad dressing and it tastes like a gourmet salad. I begged her for the recipe and 2 months later, she shared it! LOL!
This one is Gluten Free. This goes great as a side salad to any meal (especially chicken, steak or white/cream based pasta).
Enjoy! This one is a definite keeper!
- 2 heads romaine lettuce
- 1/2 wedge Havarti cheese, crumbled
- 1 package of turkey bacon
- 1/4 c. sunflower seeds
- green onion tops, cut up, optional
- 1/4 cup dried cranberries
- 1-1/2 cup salad oil (I use canola)
- 1 c. white wine vinegar
- 10 Tablespoons sugar
- 1 Tablespoon salt
- 2 cloves garlic, crushed
Combine all ingredients for the dressing and put in a container that has a tight lid. Shake dressing well and chill in the refrigerator. Cook the turkey bacon per package directions. Combine all salad ingredients in a large bowl. When the dressing has chilled, toss the salad with dressing immediately before serving. (Use as much of the dressing as you like. I never use more than 1/3 to 1/2 of the dressing. It keeps and is good to use later on other salads.)
