Strawberry Walnut SaladWhat a refreshing salad this is.  The fresh strawberries give it delicious flavor while the sugared walnuts give it a great sweetness.  The poppy seed dressing ties everything together.




9 Cups Greens – combination of Baby Spinach and bite sized pieces of Romaine Lettuce
6-8 Strawberries
1 Cup Walnuts

Poppy Seed Dressing
¼ Cup Sugar
2/3 Cup Vegetable Oil
¼ Cup Vinegar
2 tsp Poppy Seeds
1 tsp Salt
1 tsp Prepared Mustard

Sugared Walnuts
1 Cup Walnuts
6 TBSP Sugar
2 TBSP Water


Poppy Seed Dressing
Put all the ingredients in a jar with a tight fitting lid and shake until combined.  Refrigerate until needed.

Sugared Walnuts
In a small sauce-pan, heat the sugar and water.  Add the walnuts and toss, making sure they are thoroughly coated.  Continue simmering them on the stove, over low heat until all the liquid is absorbed. Then lay them flat in a dish and let them cool.  Just before they are completely cool, loosen them from the dish and let them continue to cool.

Assembling the Salad
Cover the bottom of a flat-bottomed bowl or a platter with the greens.  Slice the strawberries and arrange on top of the greens. Sprinkle the walnuts on top. Serve.
