Cookbook Salads

Poppy Seed Salad

1 head romaine lettuce
1 head iceberg lettuce
1 red onion, sliced
1 – 4 oz. can mandarin oranges, drained
1 pomegranate, sliced

1/2 medium onion, chopped
1 C. sugar
1/2 C. white vinegar
2 tsp. dry mustard
1 1/2 tsp. salt
1 1/2 tsp. salad oil
2 tsp. poppy seeds

In blender, combine dressing ingredients, except salad oil and poppy seeds. Mix at low speed until all sugar dissolves. Drizzle salad oil into blender and mix at medium speed until dressing is thick and glossy. Stir in poppy seeds. The secret to this salad is to have salad ingredients very cold in a clear glass serving bowl with romaine lettuce leaves. In center, place broken iceberg lettuce leaves, broken remaining romaine lettuce, purple onion, mandarin oranges and pomegranate. Add dressing and serve.
