One of my local grocery stores has strawberries for 69 cents/lb this week and I’m betting a lot of you are seeing specials on strawberries too. To celebrate I thought I’d post this wonderful recipe that was recently shared with me for a Poppy Seed Salad that uses strawberries.
Are you seeing good deals on strawberries? What’s your favorite way to use them?
Poppy Seed Salad
6 cups of the salad greens of your choice
Combine with your choice of the following combinations:
- 1 c. pecans, 1 c. raspberries, 1 c. cubed brie
- 1 c. cashews, 1 c. sliced strawberries, 1 c. cubed swiss
- 1 c. walnuts, 1 c. diced, red apples, 1 c. havarti
Toss with the following dressing*:
1. c. salad oil
1/2 c. sugar
1 t. onion powder
1/3 c. white wine vinegar
1 dash salt
1 t. prepared mustard
2 T. poppy seeds
* This makes a lot of dressing. It could have easily been cut in half and I would have had plenty for the salad.
