My mom has been making this recipe for years. She got it from Junior League of Jackson Mississippi- Come On In (p. 68). It is such a great salad recipe!
Serves 10-12 people
For the salad:
- 1 cup walnuts, chopped
- 1 pkg Ramen noodles, uncooked, broken up (discard flavor packet)
- 4 Tbs unsalted butter
- 1 head romaine lettuce, washed, broken into pieces (can also get a bag)
- 4 green onions chopped (sometimes I forget these)
- 1 cup of Sweet and Sour Dressing (see below)
Sweet and Sour Dressing (yields 2 1/2 cups):
- 1 cup vegetable oil
- 1 cup sugar
- 1/2 red wine vinegar
- 3 tsp soy sauce
- salt and pepper to taste
Brown walnuts and noodles in butter; cool on paper towels. Combine noodles and walnuts with romaine and onions. Pour Sweet and Sour Dressing over and toss to coat well.
