{soups-salads-and-salad-dressings} WR Cheddar-Almond Lettuce Salad


Cheddar-Almond Lettuce Salad

I would personally add some rotisserie chicken to this.  YUM!

Sugared almonds and a honey-mustard dressing make this salad a real standout. In fact, I keep slivered almonds in my freezer just so I can whip it up for those spur-of-the-moment special occasions! For more nutrition, color or variety, I sometimes add broccoli and tomatoes. --Julia Musser, Lebanon, Pennsylvania
