Leave it up to me to make a salad unhealthy.
Actually, leave it up to my mom.
This is her deal.
Best. Salad. Ever.
Make this for any summer barbecue and you will miraculously have friends you never knew existed.
Makes 4 Large Salads
One head of Romaine lettuce, cleaned, spun and chopped
1/2 lb of bacon, cooked and drained
1 handful of ripe, summer cherry tomatoes, cleaned and halved
1 handful of croutons (preferably homemade)
1/2 cup of grated fresh Parmesan
1 1/2 cups of mayonnaise
juice from 1/2 lemon
1 tsp. chopped thyme (my addition; not necessarily necessary)
salt and freshly ground pepper
Prep salad ingredients. Mix mayo, lemon juice and thyme in a small bowl and toss with salad ingredients. S/P to taste. Serve with additional cheese and pepper.
Listen to the silence....wait for applause!
Take a bow.
