Why this Pasta House Salad Recipe Works

This Pasta House Salad recipe is extremely unique.  Anyone who has ever had this salad loves it.  What makes it so different are the flavors of the artichoke hearts and the pimentos.  You won’t find these flavors in most salads.  And when you do taste it, you know it comes from the Pasta House.  Now you can make this delicious salad at home for your family.

What Makes a Great Salad

There are many variations and ingredients that make up a great salad. But there are a few rules you should live by when making a salad.

  • Use a variety of greens. This salad calls for two different types of lettuce, it’s nice to have a variety
  • Always make your own dressing. This cuts out all of the ingredients you don’t really need.
  • Add the dressing before you plate the dish. This will guarantee all of your ingredients are covered.
  • Don’t be afraid to add fruit, fat or even something with a crunch.

How to Make this Pasta House Company Salad

As I mentioned, this is a very unique salad that immediately takes you back to the Pasta House.  You will need:

  • Iceberg Lettuce
  • Romaine Lettuce
  • Red Onion
  • Pimentos
  • Artichoke Hearts
  • Parmesan Cheese

Combine these ingredients to make up the salad.  You will also need to combine the vegetable oil, olive oil, red wine vinegar, and salt & pepper to create a simple but amazing dressing for this Pasta House salad.

Notes

  • This salad calls for both Iceberg and Romaine lettuce to give it a nice variety.  Keeping the lettuce in larger chunks is what’s gives this salad its appeal.
  • Wait to add the dressing until you are about to serve it. This will keep the lettuce from wilting.
  • Make sure you drain both the artichoke hearts and the pimentos really well to keep from having a soggy salad.

    Hmm… I have made this before but my recipe calls for parmesan grated in the salad and in the dressing, so I was missing that in this recipe. We also add a pinch of sugar in our dressing to take that “sour-bitter” taste down. This is close..but no cigar. Thank you for sharing, however.
    PS The stars wouldn’t light up for me-kept going away.
