Delicious Salad

I made this salad for the family one night when I made shrimp scampi over angel hair pasta, and everyone just loved it.

  • 3/4 cup canola oil
  • 1/3 cup lemon juice
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper, opt.
  • 2 bunches (1 lb. each) romaine, torn
  • 2 cups chopped tomatoes
  • 1 cup (4-oz.) shredded Swiss cheese
  • 3/4 cup slivered almonds, toasted, opt.
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 8 bacon strips, cooked and crumbled (Add more if you like)
  • 1 cup Caesar salad croutons
  • Crazy salt

In a jar with tight-fitting lid, combine oil, lemon juice, garlic, salt and pepper; cover and shake well.  Chill.

In a large serving bowl, toss the romaine, tomatoes, Swiss cheese, almonds, if desired, Parmesan cheese and bacon.  Shake on Crazy Salt to taste and toss again.

Shake dressing; pour over salad and toss.  Add croutons and serve immediately.  Add more Parmesan cheese, if desired.

This is supposed to serve 14 people, but mine served 7 people along with the rest of the meal.  You can see what was left in my bowl.
