mixed greens and strawberry salad

Image

 

here is my favorite summer salad. i usually add grilled chicken and my homemade poppy seed salad dressing.  it is quite easy to make, and probably the best secret is the tender Boston or bibb lettuce used for the salad.  if you have fresh tender garden greens, use them. i think the more tender the lettuce leaves, the better the green salad.

i line the plate with tender greens, and then add sliced strawberries, sliced green onions, sliced carrots, and sliced fresh strawberries.  to top the salad, i add sliced almonds.

either gently toss the greens in poppy seed dressing before placing on the plate, or drizzle the dressing over the top while adding grilled chicken.  yum!
