Romaine Salad with Creamy Garlic Dressing
20 mins (prep 20)
12 ingredients
6-8 servings
I wish I had a nickel for every time I was either asked to make this salad for a gathering, or asked for the recipe for it! The dressing is irresistable! A good description for this is a Caesar Salad gone balistic. It travels well too; I prepare all the ingredients, except the avocado, and pack in separate containers and just assemble it when I get to my destination. So much of this can be done ahead of time that it makes this recipe an excellent choice for a dinner party. Plan on having copies of the recipe available because you will be asked for them! I found this recipe in the Sunset CookBook of Favorite Recipes II.
