This cool, crisp salad is a real crowd-pleaser on a hot summer night. Romaine's crisp and slightly bitter leaves are perfect here, as their sturdy texture is a good match for thick salad dressings. To add protein, try crispy crab cakes, grilled salmon, or shrimp. All make this a light and summery dish.
