I plant lettuce in my garden, so this is a recipe I make often. It's a nice change from a regular tossed salad.

"This is a great salad to have as the main dish. Just add a roll and dessert to make it a meal. I used yellow mustard instead of the dry mustard. Very tasty dish."

"This is a great recipe. I used apple cider vinegar and it was excellent. I also used a bag of fresh spinach instead of lettuce and I added chopped tomatoes. I only needed half of the dressing, so I was able to make this salad again the next day. Even my kids loved this one."
