Jill’s Strawberry and Blueberry Romaine Salad


This is one of my favorite salads to make in the spring/summer. The original recipe (which is not listed below) came out of The Junior League at Home cookbook. I added ingredients and took some away and really made it my own.

Jill’s Strawberry and Blueberry Romaine Salad

Dressing Ingredients

  • 1 cup vegetable or canola oil
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup red wine vinegar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1 T dried minced onions
  • 1/2 tsp. dried mustard
  • pinch of cayenne pepper

Put all ingredients into a jar or something with a lid. Shake until all ingredients are blended. Store for up to 1 week in the refrigerator.

Salad ingredients:

  • Romaine lettuce
  • sliced strawberries
  • blueberries
  • Monterey Jack cheese
  • glazed walnuts

You just use as much as you want of each. Shake dressing and pour desired amount of dressing over salad. Toss and serve.

Dressing Ingredient Line Up.

Just combine all ingredients

And Shake!

Ran out of time to do the salad ingredients photo, but I think you know what most of it is. I did take a photo of the walnuts I use.

Toss all the salad ingredients then toss in with dressing!

I am on the hunt for a picture of the  “Last Supper” to hang in my kitchen.  In a magazine they had an interview with a famous chef. It had photos of his kitchen. He had a picture of the “Last Supper” in his kitchen. He said he has it there to remind him that each meal should be treated like your “Last Supper. You should treasure the moment of eating good food and the people you are sharing your meal with. I thought that was great! So, I have been hunting on ebay for the perfect one to go in my kitchen.

The fondest memories
are made when
around the table.

I hope you all have a very Happy Easter. Relish… the moments spent with family and Friends.
