Gourmet Lettuce Salad {with Vinaigrette Dressing}


Here’s a really great lettuce salad for your weekend celebrations. Its sure to be a crowd pleaser! This recipe comes through my friend Rhonda from one of those tried-and-true Amish cookbooks. I don’t know that you can find it in cyberspace…. so I’m fixing that! =) It needs to be broadcasted and shared cuz its that good. I don’t know who to give credit to for this one…. so just eat and be thankful! =) 

This is a great twist to the classic Cabbage Ramen Noodle Salad that I love. The crunchy buttered noodles and the vinaigrette dressing are just marvelous. I added a few drops of sesame oil to the dressing and I think that just took the flavor over the top. Also, the dried cranberries are optional…. those were also my “color” addition! Haha. Oh, and I always add the Ramen Noodle seasoning package to the dressing cuz who wouldn’t want more flavor?

If your husband is getting a little “greened” out – try this! It just might be the answer. We thoroughly enjoy this one to the last almond. Thank you Rhonda, for sharing this recipe with me! You just made my life better! =) Meet my new all-time favorite.
