Broccoli Crunch Salad

It is finally salad time. Salad for lunch or dinner!!!! This salad is a family favorite and I hope you will love it also.

Start with a package of Ramen Noodles, sauté without the seasoning package in ½ stick of butter. Add 1 c. pecans and ¼ cup of bacon strips cut into small pieces. Keep sautéing until the ramen noodles and pecans are slightly browned.

Set aside and make the dressing. Mix together ½ c. vegetable oil, ½ c. sugar, ¼ c. red wine vinegar and the kicker…. 1/8 c. of soy sauce.

Chill the dressing for at least one hour.

Putting the salad together;

Add one head of washed and chopped Romaine lettuce, 4 green onions, chopped and two stalks of broccoli, using only the tops. Combine into one large bowl. I used Iceberg lettuce, because that was all I had, but better with Romaine lettuce.

Sprinkle the ramen noodle mixture together and cover with the dressing. I can make two salads out of this dressing but some people like more.

It is the most delicious salad with an unusual Asian flair.
