candy salad

so i really wish this picture did the dish justice, but it just doesn't. THIS IS SOOOOO GOOD. it is my families favorite salad for pot lucks and really could pass for a dessert. thanks to my friend holly for passing on this little piece of heaven!

1 big bag of spring mix salad.
2-4 heads of romaine lettuce chopped
2 pears peeled and chopped ( i ALWAYS use apples cuz i have them on hand)
1 Cup caramelized pecans- i add more
1 Cup crumbled Feta- i add more
1 Cup craisins- i add more

1/4 C. red onion chopped - i never use red onion
1/2 C sugar
1 tsp dijon mustard
1/2 tsp salt
1/3 C apple cider vinegar
1 C. Vege oil or canola oil
1 1/2 Tbls. poppy seeds
blend onion, sugar, mustard, slat and vinegar in blender. add oil and blend for about 30 more seconds then STIR in poppy seeds. Toss dressing with salad just before serving.
