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.
Chop the following and place in a bowl:
1 head lettuce/spinach
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.
