Kick Off to Summer Salad

I am almost certain the warm weather is here to stay in Metro-Detroit.  Our winter was brutal and spring wasn’t any better. We had record amounts of snow and rain. Last week we had worst rainfall in the history of Plymouth.  I couldn’t get my car out of our garage for 3 days because of the 10 inches of water that flooded our streets.  That said, I am the eternal optimist. I just  know summer is going to be beautiful!  This salad is a great way to kick off the picnic season. It is super easy and very pleasing. If you want to make it a meal add some grilled chicken or pork tenderloin sliced and served on top.

Enjoy and Happy Cooking,



1 pint strawberries, sliced
1/2 red onion, sliced thin
1-1 1/2 cups red grape, halved
1 cup prepared poppy-seed Dressing
Romaine lettuce, washed, patted dry and chopped

Grilled chicken or pork tenderloin, optional


In a large bowl, combine lettuce, sliced strawberries, thinly sliced onion, and halved grapes.

Pour dressing over top and toss just before serving.
If making a meal, top with grilled meat.
