When I was in college, a woman at the church I was attending in Tallahassee invited several of us poor, starving college girls to her home for a real meal.
This was an incredible gift because, you know, college is when you fill up your cart with Ramen Noodles and wonder –
“How many days straight can I eat this stuff before dying?”
So we showed up at her house, hungry and eager for a delicious feast, and ended up discovering the greatest salad recipe KNOWN TO MAN.
And ironically, it has Ramen Noodles in it.
1 Bag of Romaine lettuce
1 Bag of broccoli florets, chopped
1 Bunch of green onions, chopped
12-16 oz package bacon, cooked, drained, and chopped
1 package chopped pecans
1 package Ramen Noodles, broken up (discard seasonings)
4 T butter, melted
1 cup vegetable oil
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup Red Wine Vinegar
1 T soy sauce
salt and pepper to taste
Step 1 – In a medium-sized bowl, mix the noodles and pecans with the melted butter.
Step 2 – Pour the noodle/pecan mixture onto a cookie sheet and bake at 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes, stirring halfway through.
Step 3 – In a large bowl, mix lettuce, broccoli and onions.
Step 4 – Dump baked noodle/pecan mixture and bacon on top. Toss lightly.
Baby showers, bridal showers, brunches, family dinners, potlucks, holidays, receptions…
This salad will be a GUARANTEED hit WHEREVER you go.
In fact, you just might find yourself wondering how much of it you can eat before dying??? 🙂
Happy Best Salad Recipe Ever-ing!
