The recipe, which is for one salad, only calls for about a 1/4 pear (you can use more if you like), but my little ones fought over who got to finish off the rest of this one.
The recipe is for just one lunch salad, but you could easily use more of the ingredients and make a larger salad to feed a crowd.
Salad Ingredients: (makes 1 lunch salad)
1 cup Romaine lettuce, chopped
1/2 cup Dole Asian Blend Chopped Salad
1/4 fresh pear, chopped
8 large blackberries
1/4 cup cashews
1/8 cup poppy seed dressing
Layer the ingredients in the order listed and serve with poppy seed dressing.
Poppy Seed Dressing:
1 cup oil, your choice
3/4 cup sugar
1/3 cup vinegar
1 tsp poppy seed
1 tsp grated onion
1 tsp mustard
Dissolve the sugar in the vinegar completely. You can warm it up a little in the microwave to speed up the process. Add the remaining ingredients and enjoy. The dressing will usually fit into a pint sized jar. Store it in the refrigerator and shake well before serving.
