Ingredients
  • 1 head romaine
  • 2 cups spinach
  • 1/2 cup almonds, sliced
  • 1 cup strawberries, sliced
  • 1/2 cup blueberries
  • 1/4 cup thinly sliced red onion
  • DRESSING:
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons onion, finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup oil
  • 1 tablespoon poppy seed
Container: Large bowl for mixing
Directions
  • Tear lettuce into bite size pieces and combine it with the spinach.
  • Toss in almonds, strawberries, and blueberries; set aside.
DRESSING:
  • Mix sugar, lemon juice, onion, mustard and salt in blender.
  • Add oil slowly and blend until thick and smooth. Add poppy seeds and process a few seconds to mix.
  • Refrigerate the dressing until you are ready to serve the salad. When ready to serve, drizzle dressing over the salad and gently toss to coat evenly.

"I had never made a salad like this before and tried it this last weekend when I had some friends over. I just served this with grilled chicken breasts and everyone thought it was great. There were only four of us but we almost ate the entire salad. I will definitely make this salad again."
