Crunchy Broccoli Salad

I am in love with this salad! I love the crunch, the dressing, the bacon - everything! It's so nice to have a different kind of salad than the same old ones everyone makes. (Well, maybe everyone already makes this - but it's new to me!) :)

1 head romaine lettuce, chopped
1 large head of broccoli, cut into small pieces
1 bunch of green onions, chopped
1 pound of bacon, cooked and cut into small pieces
2 (3 oz) packages of Ramen noodles, crushed.  Discard seasoning packet.
4 TBS butter, melted
1 cup chopped pecans or sliced almonds

1 cup olive oil
1/2 cup red wine vinegar
1 cup sugar
1 1/2 TBS soy sauce
salt and pepper, to taste

Mix butter, nuts and crushed Ramen noodles together.  Spread on a cookie sheet and bake at 350 F, about 10 minutes, until lightly browned, stirring occasionally.  Set aside to cool completely.

Add lettuce, broccoli, onions, bacon, noodles and nuts in a large bowl.  Toss with dressing right before serving.
