Let's Have a Little Fun Salad

Lemon poppy seed dressing, parmesan, cranberries and cashews take this salad from drab to fab!


  • Bowl
  • Measuring cups and spoons
  • Mason jar (optional)


Lemon Poppy Seed Dressing

  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup lemon juice fresh or bottled
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 1 tsp Dijon style mustard
  • 1 tbsp diced onion any kind of onion will work. I've even used dried minced onion before.
  • 1/2 tbsp poppy seeds
  • 1/4 tsp salt


  • 142 grams spring mix a blend of baby lettuces and baby greens
  • 2 tbsp parmesan cheese grated
  • 1/4 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/4 cup cashews I prefer them broken into smaller pieces but you do what works for you
  • 1/2 prepared lemon poppy seed dressing approximately 1/2 cup


Lemon Poppy Seed Dressing

  • Put all ingredients into a mason jar or bowl
  • Shake the mason jar (a fun and a very kid-friendly option) OR stir the ingredients in the bowl (the less fun but still very functional option)


  • Put all ingredients in a large bowl
  • Toss to coat spring mix
  • Enjoy!
