This is from the kitchen of Jaime Barkwell.  Jaime  doesn't
call this "Jaime's Salad," but the rest of us do. The recipe
quickly spread among the Barkwell side of the family.  Is
there ever an occasion when we
don't serve it?

Romaine
Field Green Mix, optional
Cheddar Cheese, Mont. Jack good too
1 Apple, chopped

"You know you're in love when you can't fall asleep
because reality is finally better than your dreams.”
Jaime's Salad
What is it about this salad that makes it so addictive? It
appeals to all your taste buds with crunchy cashews, sweet
apple and pear, chewy craisins, and smooth jack cheese.  
The sweet poppy seed dressing compliments it perfectly.  I
always skip the crumbled bacon because I don't like
bacon.                                        -Stephanie
