Art City Trolley Salad Recipe

Do you want to eat a delicious, restaurant quality salad, yet be in the comfort of your own home? This is a wonderful salad to enjoy, similar to what is served at the Art City Trolley in Springville, Utah.

Here is the recipe:

1 small head of romaine
1/2 bag of baby spinach
1/4 c. pomegranate seeds,
small can of sliced olives
1 c. grated mozzarella cheese
4 -6 strips cooked bacon, chopped
1/2 c. sugared slivered almonds
1/2 red onion, diced
8 oz. sliced mushrooms
poppy seed salad dressing

I arranged all of the ingredients on the lettuces with dressing. You might want to toss all of the ingredients just before serving so everyone can see how pretty it looks. Serve with a nice artisan bread.

If you haven't sugared almonds before, just put a couple of teaspoons of sugar in a frying pan, and dump the almonds on top. Stir constantly while cooking over med-high heat until the sugar melts and the almonds are thoroughly coated with sugar. Pour onto waxed paper and spread out. Let cool and break into small pieces. Keep in an air tight container until ready to use.
