Special Salad

Pasta House Company Copycat Recipe

Serves 4

1 head iceberg lettuce
1/3 head romaine lettuce
1 cup artichoke hearts
1 cup sliced red onions
1 cup diced pimentos
2/3 cup olive oil
1/3 cup red wine vinegar
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
2/3 cup freshly grated parmigiano cheese

Wash the iceberg and romaine lettuce, allowing all the water to drain completely. Place in refrigerator to chill. When lettuce is well chilled, remove from refrigerator. Split head of iceberg lettuce in half, pulling the heart of lettuce out of both halves and breaking into small pieces.  Only separate the rest of the iceberg, it will break up when tossed. Tear the romaine lettuce (each leaf into 3 sections). Place both kinds of lettuce into mixing bowl.

Drain artichoke hearts well; measure and add to lettuce. Peel and slice red onion; drain and dice pimentos. Drain the pimentos completely, or salad will turn red. Measure the onions and pimentos and add to lettuce. Add the olive oil, vinegar, salt, pepper and toss. Then add parmigiano cheese. Toss until all is mixed completely and serve.
