Strawberry Salad

I think this my all-time favorite summertime salad.  My mouth is watering just from looking at this photo.   I can guarantee your belly is going to be very happy if you eat this salad.

Strawberry Salad
4 large heaping hands full of lettuce or baby spinach
1/2 sliced red onion
3/4 cup of shredded mozzarella cheese
a pint of sliced strawberries
6 pieces of bacon
1 1/2 of candied almonds or any type of nut

1/2 cup oil
1//2 cup sugar or you could use honey
1/4 cup of  red wine vinegar
1 tablespoon of dried mustard
1 tablespoon of poppy seeds
1/2 teaspoon of salt

In a bowl whisk together oil, vinegar, and sugar then add mustard, poppy seeds, and salt.  I usually make mine in a small mason jar.

Cook bacon and in the meantime assemble your other ingredients in a bowl/  When bacon is cooked crumble and add to salad.  Oh, and it is super easy to make your own candied nuts.  In a pan take your nuts and about a 1/4 cup of sugar.  The sugar can be brown or white.  When the sugar is melted stir to make sure all the nuts are coated and turn the nuts out on a piece of parchment paper.

Then enjoy!


This is just the kind of salad I love - the sweetness of the strawberries and saltiness of the bacon and candied fruits - perfection.
