Recipe Wednesday

My friend made this while we were camping this last weekend, and it was love at first sight for me!!

Craisins Salad

1 head of each: red leaf lettuce, green leaf lettuce, iceberg lettuce
1 8oz. pkg. shredded mozzarella cheese
1 8oz. pkg. shredded Parmesan cheese
1 pound bacon, cooked and crumbled
1 8oz. pkg. Craisins
1 cup sliced almonds, toasted
1 recipe Craisins Salad dressing (see below)

Break red and green leaf lettuce into pieces. Shred iceberg lettuce. Toss together with other ingredients just before serving. Pass dressing with salad. Makes approx. 12 servings.

Craisins Salad Dressing:
1/2 cup red wine vinegar
1 cup sugar (or Splenda)
1/2 onion, chopped (this is sooooo optional ;-)
1 1/2 tsp. salt
2 tsp. mustard
1 cup salad oil (I use Smart Balance)
In blender, mix all ingredients except oil. Add oil and blend again. YUM!

Enjoy!
