Zesty Mixed Salad With Italian Sausage

“Our FAVORITE salad ever. . .it's a spin on one of Giada's recipes. Great as a main dish or as a side. I love the mix of the lettuce, warm salty sausage, creamy cheese and beans along with the sweet dressing. Sure to please anyone!”

Directions

  1. Mix up the Italian Dressing as per the instructions on the package (I usually add a little extra water, but that's up to you). It is also good to use raspberry flavored vinegar.
  2. Add honey to the dressing and shake/mix well.
  3. Brown the sausage, drain and set aside (keeping warm, but not hot).
  4. In the meanwhile place the lettuce on the bottom of a big bowl.
  5. Top with the tomatoes, both types of beans, green onions and finally the cheese.
  6. Top the salad with the warm sausage.
  7. Pour 3 or 4 turns of the dressing over the salad and mix well with tongs. Add more dressing if you like, but be forwarned that a little dressing goes a long way with this salad.
