This is an excellent salad! I use romaine lettuce and add some sliced cucumber as well. In a pinch, I use bottled poppyseed dressing. Either way, it's very tasty!
I really enjoy this recipe. I have made it many times especially when strawberries are in season. I have also used butter lettuce. Butter lettuce is extremely mild.
