This salad is an all time favorite with my sister and myself. All the different flavors and textures go perfectly together. You can add some sliced chicken breast and turn it into a main dish.
1 head red leaf lettuce (I just use romaine lettuce and then a spring mixture)
1 head green leaf lettuce
1 head iceberg lettuce
1 8 oz. package shredded mozzarella cheese
1 8 oz package shredded parmesan cheese
1 pound bacon, cooked and crumbled
1 8 oz. package craisins
1 cup sliced almonds, toasted
1 recipe Craisins Salad Dressing
Break lettuce into pieces . Shred iceberg lettuce. Toss together with the other ingredients just before serving. Pass dressing with the salad. (If I'm using it all together I toss it together.) Makes 12 servings.
Craisins Salad Dressing
1/2 c. red wine vinegar
1 cup sugar
1/2 onion, chopped
1 1/2 tsp. salt
2 tsp. mustard
1 cup salad oil (I use canola)
In a blender mix all ingredients, except oil. Add oil and blend again. Toss with salad.
