Greetings from my couch. I am starting to get familiar with sleeping late and sitting on my couch for endless hours in my pajamas. God I love vacation.
Anyway, a few weeks ago I decided to participate in a recipe swap that was on the married version of The Knot- The Nest. For the swap I received, Mungo's Salad. For those of you ( like myself) not from the Midwest are you lost? I was. I had no idea what or who Mungo was. After a bit of internet surfing I found out that Mungo's is a restaurant in the Midwest! Success! After reviewing the list of ingredients I received I was excited. Provolone cheese, bacon,good seasons Italian dressing. Sounds great to me! I could not find the Mungo's website to save my life ( I did so many google searches) so I am still not entirely sure on what they serve there ( however I think it is Italian),but from the reviews I read the salad is a big hit. So I tried it! This recipe was from Jenna who writes the blog moviegirl03journey.blogspot.
|1 Head Iceberg Lettuce|
1 Head Romaine Lettuce
1 lb Bacon
3/4 lb Provel Cheese (Rope cheese)- this is hard to find unless you're in the Midwest- I have used provolone before and it tastes really similar
1 bunch of green onions
Red Wine Vinegar
Good Seasonings Italian Dressing (you'll need the carafe too if you do not have one)
3 Tbsp Sugar
|Fry or bake bacon. Set aside
to cool. Cut both heads of lettuce and place into large salad bowl. Chop green
onions and add to lettuce. Break the provel cheese into desired size pieces into
the lettuce mixture. Crumble bacon and add it in. For the dressing:|
Prepare the dressing as indicated using the lines. Use Red Wine Vinegar for the Vinegar and Olive Oil for the oil. Add 3 Tbsp of Sugar to the dressing.
Add the dressing to the salad about 10 minutes before eating time and toss with tongs
