I LOVE salads and right now this one is my favorite. Toasting the ramen noodles and pecans makes it so crunchy and flavorful. I love crunch in a salad!!
And you can never go wrong with adding bacon and craisins either. YUM!
Oh.... the dressing is pretty awesome too. I like to keep the dressing and a container of the toasted noodles and pecans on hand to throw on any salad when I want to make a quick meal.
This is the one we had at my daughters wedding and I had a lot of requests for the recipe so here it is.
