{soups-salads-and-salad-dressings} Strawberry Salad with Poppy Seed Dressing (Diabetic Exchanges Provided)


Strawberry Salad with Poppy Seed Dressing

My family is always happy to see this fruit and veggie salad on the table. If strawberries aren’t available, substitute mandarin oranges and dried cranberries. —Irene Keller, Kalamazoo, Michigan

TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 30 minutes.

YIELD: 10 servings


·                                 1/4 cup sugar

·                                 1/3 cup slivered almonds

·                                 1 bunch romaine, torn (about 8 cups)

·                                 1 small onion, halved and thinly sliced

·                                 2 cups halved fresh strawberries


·                                 DRESSING:

·                                 1/4 cup mayonnaise

·                                 2 tablespoons sugar

·                                 1 tablespoon sour cream

·                                 1 tablespoon 2% milk

·                                 2-1/4 teaspoons cider vinegar

·                                 1-1/2 teaspoons poppy seeds


·                                 1. 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.

·                                 2. 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. 

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.
