Broccoli-Romaine Salad

Last night at small group I made something a little different for our not-dessert snack (we always have a dessert and a not-dessert, or a sweet and a salty, or whatever).

I've been running out of ideas for something new and different, so I made a salad for the grown-ups, and if the kids ate it, it would be good for them.

When you look at the picture, just remember that I doubled the recipe below.

Broccoli-Romaine Salad
from my mom

1 bunch of broccoli, chopped, or a package of broccoli wokly
1 bundle of romaine lettuce, chopped (I had one bunch of red and one bunch of green and chopped them up pretty good so they were smaller pieces)
2 green onions, chopped
1/2 cup chopped walnuts (which you know would qualify as food in my food and was not included, because it's nuts)

Brown and cool:

1 package of ramen noodles in 2 tablespoons of butter, without the little seasoning package.


1/2 cup sugar (or Splenda my mom said)
1/2 cup Canola oil
1/4 cup cider vinegar
2 tsp soy sauce
salt and pepper to taste

Shake or stir dressing and refrigerate. Add just before serving along with the browned ramen noodles. You'll have to shake or stir again.

None of the kids ate it, which is a good thing, because the grown-ups (including me!) were vultures. It's a good thing I doubled it.
