Italian London Broil Salad Recipe

Italian London Broil Salad Recipe
Summertime is a great time to serve main-dish salads, and this is one of my family’s favorites.  I’ve adapted this salad to use a portion of the Italian London Broil Module which means the meat is always in the freezer to use at a moment’s notice. 

You can cut preparation time by using the cooked and crumbled bacon that comes in packages in the salad dressing section of the grocery store.   You may also use store-bought Italian dressing, although I have included an easy restaurant-style dressing that is well-worth the 10 minutes preparation time; besides, you will have plenty to use during the month since the dressing keeps at least that long in your refrigerator.

I like to keep a supply of toasted nuts in my refrigerator to add to recipes, but if you don’t have some, they can be successfully toasted in the microwave oven; place them in a shallow dish in a single layer and microwave on high four to five minutes (for 1-2 cups).
