Holiday Fruit Salad with Lemon Poppy Seed Dressing

For this recipe you will need:

  • 1/2 cup super fine sugar
  • 1/2 cup lemon juice
  • 2/3 cup olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon-style prepared mustard
  • 2 teaspoons diced shallots
  • 1 tablespoon poppy seeds
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 4 oz. shredded Asiago cheese
  • 1 cup cashews
  • 1 head romaine lettuce, torn into bite-size pieces
  • 1/4 cup dried cranberries
  • 1 apple - peeled, cored and diced
  • 1 pear - peeled, cored and sliced

To prepare this recipe:

In a blender or food processor, combine sugar, lemon juice, shallots, mustard and salt. Process until well blended. With machine still running, add oil in a slow, steady stream until mixture is thick and smooth. Add poppy seeds, and process just a few seconds more to mix.

In a large serving bowl, toss together the romaine lettuce, shredded cheese, cashews, dried cranberries, apple and pear. Pour dressing over salad just before serving, and toss to coat.

Makes 12 servings.
