Serves: 10

My family is always happy to see this fruit and veggie salad on the table.

Yield: 10 servings

Cook Time:
Total Time:


1/4 cup sugar
1/3 cup slivered almonds
1 bunch Romaine lettuce, torn (about 8 cups)
1 small onion, halved and thinly sliced
2 cups halved fresh strawberries
1/4 cup mayonnaise
2 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon sour cream
1 tablespoon milk
2 1/4 teaspoons cider vinegar
1 1/2 teaspoons poppy seeds



Place sugar in a small heavy skillet; cook and stir over medium-low heat until melted and caramel colored, about 10 minutes. Stir in almonds until coated. Spread on foil to cool. Place romaine, onion and strawberries in a large bowl. Whisk together dressing ingredients; toss with salad. Break candied almonds into pieces; sprinkle over salad. Serve immediately. Yield: 10 servings.

Health Tip: Turn this potluck salad into something heartier. Grill 2 pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts, slice and add to the salad for 10 main dish servings.
