This salad is soooo good! Even Tyson thought it was so delish and is asking me to make it again for dinner. yeah, that good!
Honestly you could add anything to this salad. The recipe suggested adding blueberries, but we used strawberries instead and it was great, and we baked chicken and put it on top. YUM! But really you could add apples, and dried fruit. It would make an awesome Fall salad with apples, pears, and dried cherries. oh yum! Try it, you won't be sad!
LEMON & SUMMER FRUIT SALAD
1/2 C sugar
1/2 C fresh squeezed lemon juice
2 tsp minced dry onion
1 tsp Dijon mustard
1/2 tsp salt
2/3 C canola oil
1 Tbsp poppy seeds
romaine lettuce and spinach
1/2 C shredded Swiss Cheese
1 C cashews
1 C raspberries
1 C blueberries
In a blender combine sugar, lemon juice, onion, mustard, salt and process until well blended. Add in oil and mix until thick and smooth. Add poppy seeds and process for just a few seconds. You don't want to pulverize the seeds. Toss together the lettuce and spinach. Added cheese, nuts and fruit and top with dressing.
And remember that one time I used to do THIS all the time! I always debate starting it back up again.
