Serves me (maniacal laughter) or about 6 people
Prep time: 10 minutes
(lettuce: 1.50, artichokes: 2.50, hearts of palm: 2.50 (on sale), bacon: .50, Parmesan: .50, pine nuts: 1.00, dressing: .50-1.00)
Note: I like this salad best with just one head of lettuce. However, when I served it to my littlest sister a couple years ago, she felt like it wasn't salad-y enough without more lettuce. I'll let you be the judge.
1-2 head romaine lettuce, chopped into mouth-sized pieces
1 can artichoke hearts (but the kind in water, not oil), drained
1 can hearts of palm, drained and cut into rounds
4 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
1/4-1/2 C grated Parmesan cheese
1 handful pine nuts (use sesame seeds if pine nuts will really break your bank, although the pine nuts are amazing in this)
Caesar dressing (Girard's was recommended when I first got this and I really fell in love with it, although it isn't cheap either)
Mix all ingredients together. Toss with dressing just before serving.
