Kraft Kitchens Tips

Best of Season
Use different colors and textures of salad greens for interest. Soft, pale green butter lettuce and crisp romaine lettuce would mix well with some peppery dark green arugula and red oak lettuce.
Creative Leftovers
This recipe is also a great way to use leftover cooked steak or roast beef.
Make Ahead
Dressing can be made a day ahead of time. Prepare dressing as directed; cover with plastic wrap, placing the plastic wrap directly on the surface of the dressing to prevent browning. Store in refrigerator until ready to use.
