Crunchy Romaine Strawberry Salad


Crunchy Romaine Strawberry Salad

I think that this may be the best salad that I have EVER eaten. I fell in love with it when a friend served this salad at bonco a couple of months ago. It is so so yummy and definitely spices things a bit from the traditional iceberg lettuce and cheese salad with Thousand Island dressing that I grew up with. It takes a little more effort but is well worth it!!

Ingredients:

1 pkg. Ramen Noodles (discard the seasoning packet)
1 c. walnuts
1/4 c. butter
8 c. romaine lettuce
1/2 c. chopped green onions
2 c. fresh strawberries

Dressing:

1/4 c. Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1/4 c. sugar
2 tbsp red wine vinegar
1/2 tsp soy sauce

Let's make the dressing first. Pour 1/2 c. EVOO in a small bowl.

Add 1/4 c. sugar.
Add 1/2 tsp of soy sauce.


Add 2 T. red wine vinegar

Whisk together and set aside.

Break up your Ramen noodles then put them in a saucepan to saute with 1/4 c. butter.
Add 1 c. walnuts and saute for 8-10 minutes.

.....or until golden.

Put your lettuce in a large bowl.

Pour your sauteed noodles and walnuts over your lettuce.

Add the 1/2 c. green onions. I bought mine in a little package that were already chopped up. :)

Add 2 c. fresh strawberries.

Drizzle the dressing over the top and toss gently.


Oh so good Crunchy Romaine Strawberry Salad!!!

Let us know if you make it!!! This is a recipe keeper!! Enjoy!
