{soups-salads-and-salad-dressings} Mary's Most Requested Salad



We’re going to St. Louis to Restaurant Depot and he’s taking me by my favorite store, Bed Bath & Beyond!   See you tomorrow.


Mary's Most Requested Salad


1 bag spring salad mix 

1 bag romaine 

3 oz bag of Oscar Mayer real bacon (It's best to make your own bacon - but I almost always cheat - applewood smoked bacon is awesome with this salad)

1/2 cup dried cherries or cranberries

1 large granny smith apple, chopped

1/2 cup toasted pecans or almonds

5 oz  Gorgonzola or blue cheese crumbled


Clean lettuce, place in large bowl and top with ingredients - toss.  
You can add more or less of each ingredient - do what you prefer.  

Chop the apple right before serving to prevent it from browning.  

To toast almonds or pecans - place in skillet on medium high heat, stirring until they are toasted.

If you plan on serving the entire salad, go ahead and add the dressing a little at a time, blending until you reach desired amount.  If not, keep dressing separate and add individually.

This salad is great with grilled chicken tossed on top for a meal.


Mary's Sweet Balsamic Dressing 

1/2 cup vegetable oil or canola

1/3 cup sugar

3 tablespoons good balsamic vinegar

1/8 teaspoon dry mustard (or a little squeeze of yellow or Grey Poupon mustard)

Few twists of fresh cracked pepper Or use 1/8 tsp of regular ground pepper


Whisk all the ingredients together, until sugar and oil are blended.  It takes a few minutes for the oil and sugar to blend.  Keep will blend.


As you waste your breath complaining about life, someone out there is breathing their last.

Appreciate what you have.

Be thankful and stop complaining.

Live more, complain less.

Have more smiles, less stress.
