    Spectacular Salad Wreath

    I saw a similar recipe on Pinterest and tweaked it a little. I made this for Christmas dinner and the family was very impressed. So easy too.

    3 cups iceberg lettuce torn
    1 cup baby spinach leaves
    fresh strawberries
    fresh blackberries
    red grapes in small bunches
    1 apple sliced
    1 red pear sliced
    1/2 cup dried cherries
    1/2 cup cashews or pinenuts
    Dressing
    1/2 cup fresh squeezed lemon juice
    1/2 cup olive oil
    1/2 cup honey

    Combine all dressing ingredients in the blender and buzz until smooth. Stir in poppyseeds. Place a dish for the dressing in the center of a large round tray, layer the iceberg lettuce, then the baby lettuce in a circle around the dish. Decorate with remaining ingredients. Enjoy! Peggy

    I'm still laughing at your reply. I guess I should have titled my post differently like, "Salad wreath, no cottage cheese involved" or something like that. Peggy
