55 Salad Recipe

I am not sure HOW I forgot to put this on here, but below is a GREAT salad recipe for any occassion! My Aunt Linda made this for Thanksgiving dinner in 2011 and it was all the rage! 55 used to be a restaurant in Columbus, OH that is no longer, so to keep the nostalgia alive, she whipped up this tasty treat!

 

Salad:
  • Romaine lettuce (I bought the 3 pack that you have to wash and tear yourself)
  • 1 red pepper chopped
  • 1 medium red onion chopped
  • 8 oz of crisp bacon crumbled
  • 8 oz of feta cheese
  • 3/4 cup toasted pine nuts

Dressing:
  • 1/2 c canola oil
  • 4 T white vinegar
  • 4 T sugar
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 3 dasheds of garlic and pepper

 
To toast pine nuts place on baking sheet at 350 degrees for about 5 mins. Watch carefully so they do not burn.

 
The sugar and pine nuts are what seals the deal on this salad. The presentation is helped with the red peppers ---- they don't fall apart like tomotoes. Here's a picture of the salad that I made for a Christmas dinner. The lighting is terrible, but you get the idea!
