Junior League Salad de Maison

My friend Chelsea made this salad for book/cook club a few months ago. The moment I tasted it I thought oh my I must find the person who made this immediately and beg for the recipe. It's such a unique amazing combination. With bacon and cheese can you really go wrong??

Junior League Salad de Maison

juice of 1 lemon
2 cloves of garlic, crushed
1 t. salt
½ t. pepper
¾ c. vegetable oil
¼ lb. bacon, diced
2 heads romaine lettuce, torn small
2 c. cherry tomatoes, halved (optional)
1 c. grated swiss cheese
2/3 c. slivered almonds, toasted
1/3 c. grated parmesan

Make dressing by combining lemon juice, garlic, salt and pepper. Beating continuously with a fork, slowly add the vegetable oil in a stream. Let stand 3 hours. Sautee diced bacon until crisp. Drain on paper towels. In a salad bowl, combine lettuce, tomatoes, swiss cheese, almonds and bacon. Toss with dressing, parmesan, salt and papper to taste. Makes 8 servings.
