Here in the Seattle area we were starting to see signs of spring. The daffodils and Tulips are coming up and it was starting to look so promising...then today snow!....snow, snow and more snow...I made a nice cheery light salad to chase away the cold.....This is flavorful and will be great at summer barbeque's...I can't wait!
Strawberry Romaine Salad
1 cup olive oil
1/2 cup sugar
1/3 cup of cider vinegar1 tablespoon poppy seeds
1 tablespoon grated onion
1 tsp salt
1 tsp dry mustard
I head of romaine lettuce, washed and torn in bite size pieces
1 cup of shredded mozzarella cheese
1 cup of sliced strawberries
2 cup sliced fresh mushrooms
1/2 cup of sliced green onion
1 cup of cubed chicken breast (optional)
1/2 cup of crumbled cooked bacon
In a blender combine dressing ingredients. Process at medium speed until thickened. In a large bowl combine salad ingredients and stir in enough dressing to coat, toss... and serve...
the remaining dressing will keep well in the fridge..also good on a fruit salad....
the few ingredients for the dressing...just put all the measured amounts into the blender and pulse a few times..
put all the salad ingredients in a large bowl and toss with about half of the dressing...(you can add more if you like, it is just a little hard to take back off)....
a little slice of spring in February!
Cheers to Happy !!
