Johnny Carino's Itallian Wedge Salad


1/4 of a wedge of crisp iceberg lettuce

Top with:

bacon crumbles

candied pecans

Gorgonzola cheese

diced Granny Smith apples

diced roman tomatoes

Top salad with ranch dressing

How to make Candied Pecans: In a sauce pan on high heat pour ¼ cup of sugar and one full bag f chopped pecans together, stir constantly. You will see the sugar caramelize. Remove from heat. These burn easily so watch them carefully.

The ranch dressing is a garlic ranch at our local Johnny's restaurant - any idea how to put that together as far as ingredient proportions? Also, the apples have lemon juice on them, likely to prevent browning, but it adds wonderful flavor.
