Summer Salad

I love salads and thankfully Darin and the boys do too. (Although Aaron likes everything separated.) 
Look at this awesome pile of romaine and spinach I picked from our garden this week. Delish!

One of our favorite summer salads is a Chicken and Fruit Salad. Here is the recipe:

3 cups cooked chicken, cubed
1 cup sliced celery
1 cup seedless grapes, halved
20 oz can of pineapple tidbits, drained (fresh pineapple is even better!)
11 oz can of mandarin oranges, drained
1/4 - 1 cup chopped pecans (the more the better in our house)
lettuce, torn 

3/4 cup (or less) of stevia
1 tsp salt
1 tsp mustard
1 cup oil
1 tbsp poppy seed
1 1/2 tbsp onion juice or finely chopped onion (1/2-1 tsp of onion powder works)
1/3 cup vinegar

We use the "Measure Mix and Pour" from Pampered Chef to mix the dressing. 
It's awesome, but any bowl will work fine. Hope your family enjoys it as much as we do.
