This isn’t your ordinary dinner salad—the lettuce wedges truly come to life when you drizzle on the romesco sauce. Freshly minced garlic and cayenne pepper shoot bursts of flavor through the dressing, and walnuts add a pleasing crunch.

"I tried the diced fresh tomatoes and, as I thought it would, it made a tremendous difference. What was simply a good recipe is now definitely top notch! Even though the recipe makes a lot of dressing, you can keep the remainder in the fridge to use again on other tossed salads. I would now rate it 5 stars, but the site won't let me."

"Easy, good dressing, except that next time I think I'll use diced fresh tomatoes rather than the stewed or canned diced for a fresher, better taste. Otherwise, really nice!"
