Strawberry Salad

Well I guess I should have published this yummy salad at the beginning of the summer instead of the end but I just made this salad for my granddaughter's 16th Birthday party at her request and I also wanted to share this with you. This is another salad that came from a friend to a friend. That's what we do...share the good stuff and I hope that you like it too.

Strawberry Salad

Chopped washed Romain Lettuce
Sliced strawberries
1 package of sliced almonds caramelized with sugar and in a frying pan
1/4 thinly sliced red onion.

2 C mayonnaise
2/3 C sugar - I use Splenda
1/3 C light or regular cream
1/c red wine vinegar
2 T. poppy seeds
3 T. strawberry jam

If you would like to exchange raspberry's in this salad use raspberry vinegar in the dressing. Toss the Romain, strawberry's, red onion and almonds with the dressing right before serving. There is enough salad dressing for several salads. This salad is so refreshing you, your family and friends will love to serve this. Enjoy!
