Check out the recipe HERE! I've made this for friends and family many a time and get rave reviews every time. In fact, this is one of the salads that restored my husband's faith in green things.
There are a lot of variations you can do with this. If the word variation and recipe in the same sentence makes your knees quake. I understand. I'm definitely a recipe follower, but I promise, you too, can give it your own twist.
I regularly leave out the green onions and parsley. Mainly because I'm tired of watching them wilt in the refrigerator from unuse. I just use romaine lettuce instead of the romaine AND iceberg...same reason. And, I make WAY more almonds than it says, like twice the amount. I've found the almonds take longer than it says to make...I turn up the heat to about med-low and just watch it.
You can take this dish from a side to the main stage by grilling some chicken and tossing that in. You could also add apples and/or strawberries and/or grapes. Just let your taste buds lead the way and it'll turn out great!
If you make it and find a great twist, let us know.
