toasted almond salad

Last week, I helped host a baby shower for a dear friend who is expecting a sweet baby boy in April.

My job was to bring the salad. It was a hit! A few of you have asked for the recipe. Here it is.

This is one of my mom's friend's sister's cousin's recipes. JK. Just one of my mom's friends.

Toasted Almond Salad

2 heads Romaine lettuce, torn up, washed
l pint cherry (or grape) tomatoes
1/2 cup slivered almonds, toasted
l cup grated Swiss cheese
l/2 cup Parmesan cheese, grated
4-5 slices of cooked bacon, crumbled

*For toasted almonds, spread out on cookie sheet and place in oven on 350 degrees for approximately 8-10 minutes. WATCH closely. They can burn quick.

The Vinaigrette

3 - 4 large cloves garlic, minced
l cup vegetable or salad oil
2 teaspoon salt
2 lemons, juice only

Add to salad and toss just before serving

*You could easily half this recipe for a small crowd. 2 heads of Romaine makes a lot of salad.
