Here is a great summer salad. The strawberries are cheap and super juicy and delicious right now so take advantage and make this! This recipe comes from my friend Ashley Carlson! She was kind enough to share this recipe with me after she made it for our friend Sarah's baby shower. We all loved it and I knew I had to share it with you all!
This salad is sweet but not overbearing. The almonds and the brie cheese really balance it all out. You have got to try this. Make it a meal by adding some grilled chicken or shrimp. Yum!!
Strawberry Poppy Seed Salad
2 heads romaine lettuce
– chopped 2 qts. strawberries, sliced

1 tbsp. dry mustard
¼ tsp salt
