Yum! This was REALLY good!!! Since I was serving a hearty main dish (baked mostaccioli) and only three people, I halved this. To my surprise, not a DROP was left! I had to fight my mom for the last bit of salad lol! When my hubs is out of town, I like to make things I've always wanted to try but know he wouldn't care for (he's SOOOOO picky haha!!!). He is away on business this week, so I'm trying out a few new recipes! Having my parents around to keep me company is just an added bonus. :) As if this isn't PERFECT as is, I made a couple of (minor) changes. I added ~ 1/2 c. of crumbled blue cheese to my salad and subbed sliced almonds for slivers (all I had). Although delicious with the cheese (what's a salad without cheese??!!??!!?), I'm sure this would have been EXCELLENT without it. As a matter of fact, I'll probably leave it out next time. NOTE: DO toast your almonds in butter as directed! It makes a HUGE (and tasty!) difference!!! If you're concerned that your almonds will be greasy, set them on a paper towel-lined plate to soak up any excess butter. Toasting on high heat will also help (to absorb the butter), but you'll need to watch VERY carefully to avoid burning / scorching. Thanks SO much for sharing your recipe, Jamie. My dad requested that I serve this AGAIN (next weekend) for his Bday dinner! :-)
