Additional Information

Make the salad a day ahead, omitting the lettuce, croutons and Parmesan topping. Stir in these remaining ingredients just before serving.

Purchase a bag of ready-to-eat torn romaine lettuce to save time.

It's easy to make this a main-dish salad. Just add 2 cups cut-up cooked chicken, ham or crab meat.
