Fresh romaine is gorgeous, isn't it? The only lettuce prettier is Bibb.
1 large head of fresh romaine
1 C cashew halves
1 C shredded swiss cheese
1/2 C craisins
1 ripe pear, peeled and chopped*
1 Granny Smith apple, peeled and chopped
1/2 C sugar
1 t dijon mustard
1/3 C oil
1/3 C lemon juice
1/2 t salt
1 T poppy seeds
Ready to assemble!
This salad tastes sweet, with a bit of tart from the apples and craisins. Perfection!
*I buy any type of pear that I can find that is soft and ripe. Usually Anjou pears, but I'll take a Bartlett if they are softer.
