I think most of us would agree, summer is the best time for a big bowl of fresh salad. Here’s one of my favorites. It’s my mother-in-law’s recipe, actually (although I made a few modifications…shhh, don’t tell her!) I added baby spinach in addition to the romaine (for even more iron and antioxidants) and substituted Greek yogurt for the sour cream in her original recipe. I also changed the plain white vinegar to apple cider vinegar (a little more flavor, I find).
1 bunch romaine lettuce, chopped
1/2 package baby spinach
1/2 red onion, thinly sliced
2 cups halved fresh strawberries
poppy seed dressing:
1/4 cup mayonnaise
2 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon Greek yogurt
1 tablespoon milk
2-1/4 teaspoons apple cider vinegar
1-1/2 teaspoons poppy seeds
1. In a large bowl, combine greens, onion, and strawberries.
2. Add all dressing ingredients to a jar with a tightly-fitting lid, and shake vigorously.
