Triple Pack of Romaine Hearts 
1 pt. fresh strawberries (or more if you desire)
Shredded Parmesan Cheese
(Optional: Almond slivers, onions)

1/3 c. sugar
1/4 c. 2% milk
2 tbsp. poppy seeds
  • Make the dressing the night before and refrigerate   
  • Chop romaine into small pieces
  • Wash romaine and dry well (I use a salad spinner)
  • Top off strawberries...rinse, dry and slice them thin.
  • Put the romaine and strawberries into a large bowl.

Hope everyone has a wonderful and safe Memorial Day!!!
