Sensation Salad

Sensation salad is one of my favorites and you never see the dressing being sold.  At the honey-do shower for my husband (when we were engaged) someone in the family brought a sensation salad and my husband just went nuts over it.  He talked about that salad for DAYS.  I made sure to get the recipe and honestly I forgot about it.  Until Now. 

We needed something to go with the jambalaya being served at my daughter’s birthday party so I thought a salad would be great.  This dressing comes together in minutes and it makes A TON!  It’s the perfect light dressing for a hot summer’s day.  I served mine with peppers and olives on the side for whoever wanted some.

Sensation Salad
Recipe from:  Diane Hebert

1 cup extra virgin olive oil
1 cup Crisco vegetable oil
5 tbsp lemon juice (fresh squeezed)
3 tbsp white vinegar
4 pods garlic, crushed, or 2 tsp bottled
1.5 tsp salt
Fresh parsley
grated parmesan cheese

Make dressing (will keep several weeks in the refrigerator).

Wash, tear and dry lettuce (use salad spinner).  Put lettuce and parsley in a Ziploc bag until ready to use.

When ready to serve, sprinkle generously with cheese and add a small amount of dressing at a time, tossing to coat.  You don’t want it coated too heavily!  Mix well.

This dressing can season 4-5 heads of lettuce.
