Best salad ever

From blog post: http://www.320sycamoreblog.com/2016/09/best-salad-ever.html

Lightly toss together:

- Spring mix salad

- Coastal English cheddar cheese, crumbled

- Dried cherries (or cranberries, I like the cherries)

- slivered almonds (you can caramelize them if you like)

- thinly sliced apples or pears (dipped in lemon juice if it will be awhile before adding dressing)

Lemon Poppyseed Dressing

1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup lemon juice
1 tsp onion powder
1 teaspoon dijon mustard
1/2 teaspoon salt
2/3 cup oil (whatever I have on hand: canola, vegetable, or olive)
1 tablespoon poppy seeds


In a blender or food processor, combine sugar, lemon juice, onion powder, 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. Toss with salad right before serving.
