Directions

  1. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Place the almonds in the skillet, and cook, stirring frequently until lightly browned. When the almonds are beginning to turn, add sesame seeds, and cook 1 more minute, or until seeds are toasted.
  2. In a large salad bowl, combine lettuce with feta cheese, olives, almonds, sesame seeds, tomatoes, onion, mushrooms, and Romano cheese. When ready to serve, toss with Italian dressing.

Delicious. I took this to a potluck and I didn't get enough myself before it was totally gone. I will make this again soon so I can enjoy it. I used a lot of advice from the comments--Paul Newman's balsamic vinaigrette, grape tomatoes, whole olives, sunflower seeds. I packed everything separately for the trip to the party, then quickly threw it together. Very pretty and appealing to all! Thanks for the recipe.

Great salad. I left the dressing off since everyone at our house likes a different type. Fast, easy and very pretty. The red leaf lettuce is a great color booster. I also added cucumbers and chopped ham to make it a meal.

Really great salad when you want a tossed salad that is different than the norm. The almonds add a nice taste and the romano and feta cheese combo gives so much flavor. I made it for a dinner party and everyone loved it.
