"This is one of my favorite summer salads. I often add a little cottage cheese on the side and serve this as a meal."

1 1/2 tablespoons
Bibb lettuce - rinsed, dried and torn

Great salad. I added sliced tomatoes and red onion to it. And I left the dressing on the side because my daughter would rather put ranch dressing on it. I served this with Chrismas dinner and the entire salad was gone.
This was an average salad--but I eat a lot of interesting salads, so it takes something special to make me say, "Wow!" I prefer darker greens, so I used romaine and spring mix (although I would have mixed in the Bibb if it hadn't gone bad). Plus, I used sprouted sunflower seeds, which I love. After tasting the dressing, I added sea salt, pepper, and an extra splash of balsamic. I omitted the mayo because I don't use it. I do plan to keep this one--it will be a good lunch salad for work: Mix the dressing ahead of time, toss the sunflower seeds on the lettuce, and bring the whole avocado to chop up at work. Next time, I'll take a previous reviewer's suggestion and use Dijon mustard.
This is one great tasting salad.
good decent salad. nothing special.
I love this salad! I used half green leaf lettuce and half bib lettuce, and I ended up giving the rest of my dinner to my husband so I could eat the salad. Definately worth the calories once and a while! My son didn't like it at all, though.
this salad was good but i thought that the dressing shouldve have had some sugar in it because when i made it it the dtressing was bitter, but i added some sugar and it was great.
it was easy to make too! i would make it again.
We loved it, very interesting blend of flavours. Used a extra clove of garlic (natch) but next time will use less olive oil as I think one reviewer suggested. Also did not add salt as added salted, roasted sunflower seeds.
