Only five more weeks of winter and it'll be my favorite time of year--spring! Fall is a close second. I made our favorite salad for dinner tonight, hoping it might hurry things along or at least feel a bit more spring-y. It's loaded with yummy stuff.
CRANBERRY PEAR SALAD
1 head romaine lettuce, chopped
1 pear or can of pears, cubed
1 apple, cubed
1/2 cup craisins
1 cup shredded swiss cheese or crumbled bleu cheese
1 cup pecans, chopped (I toast them)
Layer ingredients in order given. *I've also added chicken or turkey chunks to this salad.
POPPY SEED DRESSING
1 cup olive oil
1 cup apple cider vinegar
1/2 cup sugar or 1/4 cup honey
1/2 tsp. dry mustard
1 T. poppy seeds
1 tsp. salt
Mix ingredients in a jar and shake. *This makes quite a bit of dressing, so I usually cut the recipe in half.
