    Yum! I used a combination of iceberg and romaine because that’s what I had on hand. Very simple and tasty salad. Loved the dressing. Thanks GailAnn for sharing. Made for Cooking Tag Mania.

    What a wonderful, easy and tasty meal. Made this for our lunch today and cut the dressing in half and used cherry tomatoes (out of regular/plum tomatoes). Definately a meal to fix on busy warm day/night. Thank you for posting. Made for 2013 Zaar Cookbook tag game.

    Great dressing for the salad. I made this but used Cajun fish and turned out great. I was a bit concerned about that much Dijon but was wonderful.

    A delicious and quick meal. I followed the lead of JustJanS and made only half the dressing. A portion of the dressing was tossed with the salad and the remaining drizzled over the cooked chicken.

    Delicious! All three of us really enjoyed this recipe. The flavours were very tasty. We used baby leaf mesclun for the greens and I substituted the vegetable oil with olive oil spray but then kept to the recipe. Thank you gailanng for posting a yummy recipe.


I’m just me, mother, grandmother…friend to many and a Louisianian. My Cajun and French Quarter Italian descent afforded me exposure to some of the best of foods. My passions are my family, decorating, cooking and gardening. Those very passions push me into constant awareness with always looking for something new to delight the senses, thus my favorite idiom…Inspire me, puuuullllllleeeeeeease! …and I mean it, too. God Bless America!
