Crunchy Romaine Salad

I'm sorry I didn't take a picture of this salad before we ate it. Recipe came from Idaho Power's customer newsletter for May and is a wonderful change from your typical salad. I think a few green onions would have been a nice addition but I didn't have any.

Crunchy Romaine Salad Salad

1/4 cup sugar

3 tablespoons olive oil

¹⁄8 cup apple cider vinegar

1 teaspoon soy sauce

salt and pepper to taste

1 (3 ounce) package ramen noodles, broken into small pieces

1 tablespoon butter

¼ cup sliced almonds

2 cups chopped broccoli

1 small head romaine lettuce, torn

brown. In a large bowl combine romaine and broccoli. Just before serving toss romaine with

dressing and noodles.

Makes 8 servings; each about 1 cup.
