Fresh Strawberry Lettuce Salad

A very fresh and healthy salad that combines all the goodness of early season crops - strawberries, lettuce, and even green pepper. 

During the month of June, you can find Michigan Strawberries at Country Harvest Greenhouse.

1/2 cup fat-free creamy salad dressing/miracle whip
1/4 cup milk
1/4 cup white sugar
1/8 cup distilled white vinegar
1 tablespoon poppy seeds
1 head romaine lettuce, torn into bite-size pieces
1/2 red onion, sliced
1 cup sliced fresh strawberries
1/2 cup toasted pecans
1/4 cup red bell pepper, chopped

In a small bowl, mix together salad dressing, milk, sugar, vinegar, and poppy seeds. Refrigerate until ready to use.

Combine lettuce, onion, strawberries, pecans, and red bell pepper in a salad bowl. Toss with dressing.
