Strawberry Salad with Poppy Seed Dressing

I love the Strawberry Salad at Panera Bread, so I decided to make a version at home that’s been a big hit!

strawberry poppyseed saladIngredients:


2 heads romaine lettuce
1 cup sliced strawberries
1/2 cup blueberries
1 small can mandarin oranges, drained
1/2 cup chopped, roasted pecans


6T mayonnaise
1/4c milk
2T white wine vinegar
6T sugar
2T poppy seeds


Chop the romaine and heap into a salad bowl.  Top with the sliced strawberries, drained mandarin oranges, blueberries and pecans.

Combine all of the dressing ingredients in a bowl and whisk well, or, combine in a mason jar and shake well.  This dressing will be very thin so you don’t need a lot. You can either dress the salad right before serving, or let everyone dress their own serving to taste.
