Spinach and romaine lettuce, chopped (I only had romaine this time)
Strawberries (sliced and cut into bite sized pieces)
Red onion, diced
2 c mayonnaise
2 t poppy seeds
1/3 c Four Monks Raspberry White Wine Vinegar
2/3 c sugar
1 t dry mustard
1/3 c strawberry jam
salt and pepper to taste
Combine all dressing ingredients and refrigerate for at least 1 hour. Assemble salad fixin's just before serving.
*I used carmelized sliced almonds - b/c that's what I had. 4 T sugar + 1/2 c sliced almonds in a frying pan on medium heat. The sugar will heat up and start to carmelize. Stir often to prevent burning and keep all the almonds coated. Add a little water as needed to help the sugar dissolve.
**I couldn't find Four Monks Raspberry White Wine Vinegar at my local grocery. Instead I used Brianna's Poppy Seed Dressing & also walmarts 'Market Fresh' brand Raspberry Vinaigrette in combination to mimic the flavor.
The picture is missing the candied almonds (b/c my 4 yr old is allergic to nuts) and is also missing the dressing - b/c kids can be picky and when serving so many little ones - I wanted to keep their options open...
