The Ultimate Salad!

I didn't get a picture of mine, but it will look something like this


I really don't know what else to call this salad, but no other salad compares to this baby! ;) I got this recipe from my mother in law and tried it out yesterday for a baby blessing I went to. I'm gonna brag a little and tell you that it was a HUGE hit! It made me feel so good that everyone was raving about it! So here it is!



1/2 lb bacon cooked and crumbled (I just bought the already cooked and crumbled ones that come in a little baggie)
small (6 oz) bag craisins
4 oz grated mozzarella
4 oz grated parmesan
4 oz slivered almonds (toasted sugar covered is best)
2 bags romaine lettuce (or you can buy the 'head' and chop it up yourself)



Dressing



1/4 cup chopped purple onion
1/2 cup red wine vinegar
1 cup sugar or splenda
1 tsp salt
2 tsp dry mustard
1 cup veg oil



In a blender or food processor (or I used my magic bullet) combine onion, vinegar, sugar, salt and dry mustard. Blend VERY well. Slowly add the veg oil while blending. Toss all ingredients together in a large bowl, and wala! The Ultimate Salad!



Now, a heads up, this salad gets soggy and wilty within a half day or so, so you're not going to want to toss it all together until right before serving. I put all of the 'toppings' for the salad together in a large salad bowl with a lid, and kept the lettuce separate in it's bags, and the dressing in a container with a lid. Then right before serving I tossed the lettuce and dressing into the bowl.
