THE WORKS ROMAINE LETTUCE SALAD WITH CILANTRO SALAD DRESSING





THE WORKS ROMAINE LETTUCE SALAD

This salad is substantial and is very good served with a Creamy Ranch Dressing or Cilantro Salad Dressing - see below this recipe.  I paired this salad with my Mexican Lasagna.

5 cups chopped Romaine Lettuce (1.25 L)
1/2 cup grated Cheddar cheese (125 mL)
1/2 cup grated carrot, OR more (125 mL)
  grated Cheddar cheese
4 hard-boiled eggs, chopped
4 slices cooked bacon, chopped
1 Roma tomato, chopped

In large salad bowl, top Romaine lettuce with Cheddar cheese, grated carrot, OR more grated Cheddar cheese, hard-boiled eggs, bacon and tomatoes (reserve some of each for the top of the salad).  Toss gently to combine and top with reserved ingredients for an attractive look.

CILANTRO SALAD DRESSING

I am not a huge fan of cilantro; however, sometimes when I buy parsley it comes with cilantro and green onions in a package.  What to do with the cilantro?  This dressing is tasty even to me.

1/2 cup mayonnaise (125 mL)
1/2 cup sour cream (125 mL)
1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro (125 mL)
3 tbsp almond milk (45 mL)
1 tbsp lime, OR lemon juice (15 mL)
1 tbsp olive oil (15 mL)
2 tsp minced garlic (10 mL)
1/2 tsp black pepper (2 mL)
1/4 tsp salt (1 mL)

In blender, combine mayonnaise, sour cream, cilantro, almond milk, lime, OR lemon juice, olive oil, garlic, black pepper and salt.  Blend well until smooth.
