Strawberry Salad

This recipe comes from my wonderful mother-in-law, she prepared this for a small get together we had recently at our house, and she got it from Kraft. The salad was amazing and made a wonderful side to the Gulf Coast Shrimp since it's a very sweet dish, also making it a wonderful summer time salad. We had five people, and she cut everything in half and we still had plenty for every one.

Strawberry Salad
2 bags (10 oz. each) torn Romain lettuce
2 cans (15 oz. each) mandarin orange segments, drained
4 cups sliced strawberries
1 medium Red onion, sliced
1 cup Caramelized Almonds

1. Toss lettuce with oranges, strawberries and onion in large bowl.

2. Sprinkle with caramelized Almonds.

3. Add Poppy Seed Dressing; mix lightly. Serve immediately.
