Comments

This is a lighter version of a salad my mom always made during holidays and special occasions.

Ingredients

4 slices bacon, reduced sodium

10 cups red leaf lettuce, or other leafy lettuce

1/3 cup vegetable oil

1/4 cup vinegar, cider, or other

1 shallot(s), finely chopped

2 tablespoons sugar

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon mustard, dry

1 tablespoon poppy seeds

3/4 cup cottage cheese, low fat

Preparation

Wash lettuce and spin dry. Roughly chop lettuce and place in a large salad bowl. Place bacon in between double layered paper towels and cook in the microwave for 2 to 3 minutes until crisp and cooked through. To make dressing, mix remaining ingredients in a small bowl. Pour dressing over lettuce, add crumbled bacon and toss gently.
