I like salads that are just a little bit different - not weird or unusual, just a little more creative than the same old, uninspired garden salad. This appealed to me - except for the walnuts and Romano cheese, so I didn't use either. (Scallops and Romano is not a winning combo in my view, and the walnuts didn't seem to belong either) The soy sauce marinade was barely noticeable, which I'm sure Hubs, who generally doesn't care for marinated anything, appreciated. I liked the fact that a lot of the prep could be done in advance - the bacon, mushrooms and asparagus all were cooked and ready to go once it came time to assemble the salad. I felt that a balsamic dressing would be too heavy for the delicate scallops so I used a lighter, lemon vinaigrette instead. The combination of of the Bibb and red leaf lettuces was really very nice - pretty as well as tasty. I didn't grill this salad, however - I sauteed the mushrooms on the stovetop and pan seared the scallops as well. Stunning dinner salad, which I served with Roasted Red Pepper and Tomato Soup, recipe also from this site.
