Hearts of Romaine with Sugar Snap Peas and Green Goddess Dressing

Hearts of Romaine with Green Goddess Dressing

A few weeks ago my husband and I celebrated my birthday by going to one of my favorite restaurants, 4th St. Bistro.  The meal was delicious as always.  I particularly enjoyed the salad I ordered: Hearts of Romaine with Sugar Snap Peas and Green Goddess Dressing.  Topped with thinly sliced radishes and a few chives, it was delicious and refreshing!

Salad and Salmon

I don’t often try to recreate dishes I order in restaurants, but this salad was so good, and seemed pretty straight-forward to copy.  I already had a recipe for Green Goddess Dressing, so I started with that.  Adding the proper veggies was a snap.

Romaine Salad

This salad came very close the restaurant version and I enjoyed it very much.  I hope you enjoy it too!
