This little recipe is one I clipped a couple of years ago from our little grocery stores ad. I was glad to find a poppy seed dressing that was homemade. It is nice not to have a million different bottles of condiments in the fridge all the time. We also use candied almonds--making them as instructed in Jack's Favorite Salad. When Jack eats this salad he says, "That could be dessert!"
Strawberry Salad with Poppy Seed Dressing
3 Tablespoons sugar
3 Tablespoons light Mayonnaise
2 Tablespoons milk
1 Tablespoon White Wine Vinegar
1 Tablespoon poppy seeds (I think 2 teaspoons would be ample)
10 oz Romaine Lettuce torn
1 cup Strawberries
2 Tablespoons toasted slivered almonds
Combine the sugar, mayonnaise, milk, poppy seeds and vinegar in a small bowl and whisk well.
Place lettuce in a large bowl. Add the strawberries and almonds and toss lightly. Divide among individual serving plates and drizzle each with about 1 Tablespoon dressing.
Makes six servings.
**We like this dressing, just as well as the store bought poppy seed.
