Crunchy Romaine Toss Salad

 The yummy homemade dressing!!!

 The crunchies you'll put on top!!!

 Fresh sliced strawberries!

The Salad!

Lettuce Salad:
1 head Romaine lettuce, washed and cut
1 lb strawberries, washed, hulled and sliced
3 green onions
2 heads of brocoli


2 pkg Ramen noodles, crushed
1 c slivered almonds
1/2 stick butter


1 c vegatable oil
1/2 c red wine vinegar
1 c sugar
1 T soy sauce

Cut, wash and prepare lettuce and put in a large bowl.  Wash and cut brocoli into small bite size pieces.  Cut green onion and put over lettuce with the brocoli.  In a small saucepan, melt butter.  Add DRY broken up Ramen Noodles and almonds and saute until they are golden.  I would suggest a medium heat and watch closely stirring frequently.  These will burn quickly if they are not watched.  In another container (I use a Ziploc Twist and Lock) and mix together oil, red wine vinegar, sugar and soy sauce.  Cover with lid and shake until everything is well combined.  When ready to eat, serve lettuce bowl part onto your plate, top with strawberries, crunchies and the amount of dressing you desire!  Eat!  This is so light and so refreshing!  You will want seconds!  I DO NOT recommend putting EVERYTHING all together in one big bowl as once it's all combined it all must be eaten!  If you serve separately, you can use as leftovers!
