Winter Fruit Salad with Lemon Poppy Seed Dressing
This is one of the best salads I have ever made and is a hit at dinner parties. I think the cashews make the salad.
|1/4 cup||white sugar|
|1/2 cup||lemon juice|
|2 teaspoons||diced onions|
|1 teaspoon||dijon-style prepared mustard|
|2/3 cup||vegetable oil|
|1 tablespoon||poppy seeds|
|1 head||romaine lettuce, torn into bite-size pieces|
|4 ounces||shredded Swiss cheese|
|1/4 cup||dried cranberries|
|1||apple - peeled, cored and diced|
|1||pear - peeled, cored and sliced|
In a blender or food processor, combine sugar, lemon juice, onion, mustard, and salt. Process until well blended. With machine still running, add oil in a slow, steady stream until mixture is thick and smooth. Add poppy seeds, and process just a few seconds more to mix.
In a large serving bowl, toss together the romaine lettuce, shredded Swiss cheese, cashews, dried cranberries, apple, and pear. Pour dressing over salad just before serving, and toss to coat.
