Saveur did a great cover story on 12 restaurants that matter, with recipes from each. I am working my way through them. From a Seattle restaurant called Canlis was a recipe for their signature salad:
I make salads of all kinds all the time. They are good, my salads. People agree. But I've now made this twice, and the consensus is 'This is the best salad you've ever made!' So much for my homemade recipes. Anyway, give it a try. Do it as written the first time... the way you cook the bacon, and the amount of herbs, etc, is just right. I am not even a huge fan of mint but it somehow works.
