Lately, I have been on a salad kick. I really love salads that are creative, tasty and healthy! My favorite salad is when someone else prepares it. It just seems to taste better! This is from my dear friend Dori.
2 bags Romain Lettuce
1 apple chopped (I dipped the apples and pears in lemon juice to reduce the browning)
1 pear chopped
1 c. shredded Swiss cheese
1/4 c. cranberries
1 c. pine nuts ( I used roasted/salted sunflower seeds on Sunday)
1/3 c. apple cider vinegar
2 T. lemon juice,
2/3 c vegetable oil
1/2 c sugar
2 T. onion
1/2 t. salt
3 t. poppy seeds
Combine the lettuce, apple, pear, Swiss cheese, cranberries and pine nuts in salad bowl.
Whisk all the dressing ingredients (apple cider vinegar, lemon juice, vegetable oil, sugar, onion, salt and poppy seeds) together in separate bowl.
Toss with salad JUST BEFORE serving. It gets yucky if it sits around too long!
