I've made this salad a few times recently, and while it's nothing earth-shattering, I thought I'd share the recipe I created.
Italian Tossed Salad
1/2 head of romaine lettuce, washed and torn into bite-sized pieces
1/2 head of iceberg lettuce, washed and torn into bite-sized pieces
1 to 2 carrots, washed, peeled, and grated
several thin slices of RED onion (it's actually purple), separated into rings
1/2 cup (?) grated Parmesan cheese (just add this to taste)
croutons (I like garlic)
Toss all ingredients together in a salad bowl using your hands. Add additional onions, croutons, and cheese to the top to make it pretty. Voila! Serve with a great dressing like Kraft Caesar Vinaigrette with Parmesan Cheese. I'd also love to try this homemade variety here.
This salad serves 6. Enjoy!
P.S. Add some olives (eww) and a pepper and it's an Olive Garden copycat!
