Winter Salad with Lemon Poppyseed Dressing

Here's the salad I served at Suppa' Club.

It's just as delicious as it is pretty.

Winter Salad with Lemon Poppyseed Dressing (via See Jane in the Kitchen)
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup lemon juice
2 tsp diced green onion
1 tsp Dijon-style mustard
1/2 tsp salt
2/3 cup vegetable oil
1 tbs poppy seeds
1 head Romaine lettuce
4 oz shredded swiss cheese
1 cup slivered almonds
1/4 cup dried cranberries
1 apple-peeled cored and diced
1 pear-peeled, cored and diced

1. In a blender or food processor, combine sugar, lemon juice, onion, mustard and salt. Process until well blended. Add oil in slow steady stream until mixture is thick and smooth. Add poppy seeds and process just a few seconds more to mix.
2. In a large serving bowl combine the lettuce, shredded Swiss cheese, almonds, dried cranberries, cubed apple and cubed pear. Toss to mix then pour dressing over salad just before serving and toss to coat.
