So funny how so many reviewers remember their mothers making a similar recipe. It's good to be reminded that simple, old standbys can still be good. "Ranch" has kind of become today's go-to for dips and dressing, where mayonnaise used to be. What I remember my mother (and grandmother!) doing was mixing a bit of ketchup into mayonnaise and making a thousand island style dressing to go over the lettuce wedge. Bacon is an awsome addition, but the tomatoes are totally optional (for those days there's nothing in the kitchen).
OMG - my mom used to make this when I was a kid (some 50 years ago) but she'd use mayo instead of ranch. I make this quite often when I don't know what to make or don't want a heavy meal. Have used ranch for picky kid but always mayo for mine. Thanks for posting and bringing back such wonderful memories.
I, too, have made this recipe for years. It's the freshest tasting salad with the least amount of fuss. I have fun arranging things on the chilled individual plates: some tomato wedges, some cucumber slices, a little pile of feta cheese, maybe a half of a hard boiled egg and a long scallion draped artfully across the top ;). Absolutely delightful!
For something so simple, this is always good. You can use any dressing that you like, but for me....Ranch is the way to go.
Salad is good this way, and I am not quite sure why!! :-) Got this idea from Lonestar Steakhouse
This is a great salad, A friend made it for me for lunch one day. Shes uses Blue cheese Dressing, drizzles a little Balsamic Vinaigrette dressing on the plate first then the lettuce, bacon, dressing and tomatoes. I made it for my husband, he also liked it.
I like to add a little extra diced tomato and crumbled Gargonzola or Bleu Cheese along with a GOOD Bleu Cheese Dressing...*Marie's* Yummy!
