Summer Salad with Sweet Poppy Seed Dressing

Summer is the season for cool, crisp salads- hearty enough to satisfy, light enough to refresh. Tropically inspired, this salad just seems to fit the bill.


  • Prep Time : 15 min
  • Cook Time : 6-7 min
  • Ready Time : 21 min




  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • ½ pound assorted mushrooms (e.g., shiitake and button), stems removed and sliced
  • 1 head red leaf lettuce, torn into bite-size pieces
  • 1 head green leaf lettuce, torn into bite-size pieces
  • 1 medium red onion, cut into thin rounds (optional)
  • 1 avocado, cut into chunks
  • 1 ripe mango, cut into bite-size chunks
  • 1 red bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 yellow pepper, chopped
  • 1 green pepper, chopped
  • 1 (16-ounce) can hearts of palm, sliced into thick rounds
  • 1⁄3 cup craisins
  • Sweet Poppy Seed Dressing
  • 1⁄3 cup toasted almonds


Sauté: In a medium skillet, heat oil over medium heat and sauté mushrooms for 6-7 minutes or until soft.
Mix: In a large bowl, combine lettuces, onion, avocado, mango, peppers, hearts of palm, craisins and mushrooms. Add dressing and toss to combine. Sprinkle almonds on top and serve.

plan ahead – If not serving immediately, rewarm mushrooms prior to serving.

    where is the dressing recipe?

  2. It seems that the dressing recipe was left out. The recipe is as follows:
    ½ small onion
    1 teaspoon salt
    1 teaspoon dry mustard
    4 tablespoons cider vinegar
    ½ cup sugar
    ½ cup oil
    1 teaspoon poppy seeds

    Blend all dressing ingredients in a food processor with knife blade or use an immersion hand blender.

    I have made this recipe several times. It is unique and delicious. The sauteed mushrooms are a surprise and add to the myriad of textures. I give this a big thumbs up!

  4. I made this quite a few times over the holidays and every time I varied the ingredients in the salad slightly, but I always had those sauteed mushrooms. It was delicious!!
