Strawberry Romaine Salad With Poppy Seed Dressing

We eat a lot of salads around here, especially in the warm summer months. They go great with grilled food and often make a main dish for lunch or dinner. I’m always on the lookout for a fresh take on eating our greens. Last summer I feel in love with the combination of strawberries and romaine lettuce. I played around with a few different versions and finally came up with this one that also includes cucumber, red onion and a yummy homemade poppy seed dressing.

You can make everything ahead of time. Just store your dressing in a little mason jar, shake it up and pour it over the salad right before you’re ready to eat.
