Strawberry Romaine Salad

This salad gets its flair from a simple creamy poppy seed dressing. Make a double batch of the dressing to use on your other favorite salads.
  • 1 large head romaine lettuce
  • 1 red onion, sliced
  • 1 pint fresh strawberries, sliced
  • 1 (11 ounce) can mandarin oranges, drained
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/8 cup maraschino cherry juice
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 tablespoon poppy seeds
  • 1/8 teaspoon lemon juice

In a large bowl, toss the romaine, onion, strawberries and oranges.

In a medium-sized mixing bowl, whisk together the mayonnaise, cherry juice, honey, poppy seeds and lemon juice. Pour enough of the dressing over the romaine mixture to coat and toss together well.
