I can’t believe I’m only just now sharing this with you. It’s one of my all time favorite salads, and while it may be short on ingredients, it’s big on flavor. I love the simplicity of it, how the flavors just work together.
My mother in law introduced me to this salad. She always makes it when we go over for dinner. It is a lovely starter to pasta dishes, and is also good paired with sandwiches, or even as a main course with a big piece of fresh, warm buttered bread.
Walnut Romaine Salad – my Mother in Law’s recipe
- 1 Head Romaine Lettuce
- 1/3 Cup Grated Parmesan Cheese
- 1/3 Cup Toasted Walnuts
- 1/4 Cup Vegetable Oil
- 1/3 Cup Tomato (or V-8) Juice
- 3 tsp. Dried Minced Onion
- 3 Tbsp. Lemon Juice
- 1/4 tsp. Salt
- 1/4 tsp. Pepper
- 1 tsp. Sugar
- 1 Tbsp. Dried Basil
Mix together dressing ingredients (listed from Oil to Basil) and refrigerate until ready to use.
When ready to serve, toss with the lettuce, parmesan and walnuts.
