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
- 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.
- Romaine lettuce
- sliced strawberries
- 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.
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.
I hope you all have a very Happy Easter. Relish… the moments spent with family and Friends.
