Great New Salad Recipe

Photo credit: 101 Cookbooks

Last night I had red butter lettuce in the fridge but no plan for a salad. I had some toasted almonds and Kalamatas left over from my orzo pasta and an orange so I did a little googling and came across this recipe for a Butter Lettuce Sunshine Salad. I used her dressing, minus the parmesan and voila, a delicious new salad. This makes more than enough dressing so you'll have some for the next night too.
