Strawberry Salad

One of the best things about going to gatherings with friends and family is trying new foods.  At a friend's party over the Christmas holidays, we were all asked to bring a dish and a copy of one of our favorite recipes.  A woman had brought this delicious salad and we all kept going back for more.  I have the little recipe card from this gathering in my little treasured recipe box.  When I think of summer, I think of fresh strawberries so to me this is the perfect summertime side dish. 

Strawberry Salad
Chop the following and place in a bowl:
1 head lettuce/spinach
1 cucumber
1 bunch strawberries

Wisk the following dressing ingredients together:
1/4 cup sugar
1 tsp salt
1 tsp dry mustard
1/2 cup white vinegar
1 cup canola oil
1-2 tsp poppy seeds

Mix the dressing into the salad, chill, and serve.

Hummm...I have heard of pear salad, but not strawberry. It does sound like a yummy summer dish. My mom is always looking for new recipes to try as well. I will have to pass it on to her.
