Summer Salads

I love Summer Salads!

Since this salad is so simple, I don't even have a recipe...but sliced watermelon, cantaloupe, raisins, pine nuts and sprinkled with shredded coconut.  No dressing needed.  

My next favorite summer salad is cantaloupe on a bed of fresh spinach
and topped with a Poppy Seed Dressing.

Poppy Seed Dressing

3/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon onion juice
1 teaspoon dry mustard
1 cup salad oil
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons poppy seeds
1/3 cup cider vinegar

Put all ingredients except poppy seeds into a jar with a lid and shake it
until thick and smooth. Add seeds, shake again and serve. Store in the
fridge and re-shake as it will settle.
