Instead of making the salad first and then adding the dressing, we are making the dressing first.

Inside a Ziploc bag, I combined mayo, milk, dijon mustard, Worcestershire sauce, garlic salt and salt & pepper. Close up the bag and mix it all together.

I then added half a bag of shredded romaine lettuce, cooked shredded chicken, grape tomatoes, and croutons. Again I closed the bag and mixed everything up, making sure all of the lettuce, chicken, tomatoes, and croutons were covered in dressing.

I added a little more pepper and shredded parmesan cheese and mixed it up again.
