We had a nice sized crowd, with long tables laid end to end. A simple table, twinkly lights, good food and good people make for happy days.
I have to say, this is the first time I used plastic plates at a party, but I’m all for reusable dishes, promise!
Now to get to the good stuff…
All you need is romaine lettuce, red onion, and lots of juicy red strawberries… yum …
I serve this with a poppy seed dressing:
2 tablespoons of white vinegar,
2 teaspoons of poppy seeds,
1/2 cup of mayo,
1/4 cup of milk,
2 tbs sugar (or 1 tbs splenda, if you prefer, adjusted to taste)
For the very best taste, soak the red onion in the dressing for a couple of hours and dress the salad just before serving.
This salad makes a great summer side, but it’s also delicious with grilled or rotisserie chicken for a low/no cook meal that is light and satisfying. Or for a meatless option, throw in some slivered almonds. You really can’t go wrong with this one, and with strawberry season in full swing, it’s the best time of year to make this salad.
