Winter Salad - Susan Panzica

1/4 cup sugar
1/3 cup lemon juice
2 teaspoons finely chopped onion (or dry minced onion)
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1/2 teaspoon salt
2/3 cup oil
1 tablespoon poppy seeds

1 large head romaine lettuce, torn into bite size pieces (about 10 cups)
4 oz. (1 cup) shredded Swiss cheese
1 cup cashews (I use pecans or whatever)
1/4 cup sweetened dried cranberries
1 apple, cubed
1 pear, cubed

In blender container or food processor bowl with metal blade, combine sugar, lemon juice, onion, mustard, and salt. Cover; process until blended. With machine running, add oil in slow steady stream, processing until thick and smooth. Add poppy seeds; process a few seconds to mix.

In large serving bowl, combine salad ingredients; toss to mix. Pour dressing over salad; toss to coat.

Swiss cheese can be omitted for non-cheese eaters.
In summer, I substitute strawberries, blueberries, mandarin oranges, mango, etc.
I usually pare the pear, skin can be bitter.
