Blushing Pink Bowtie Salad

Ingredients

Ingredients:
8 strips of bacon, cooked and crumbled (I used turkey bacon)
baby spinach leaves - stems removed, washed, and torn
inch romaine lettuce, cleaned and cut bite size pieces
mozzarella cheese (julienne into 1-inch strips)
Fresh strawberries, cut into bite-size chunks
Ingredients for Dressing:
2/3 cup sugar
1 teaspoon dry mustard
2 tablespoons sweet onion (Vidalia or Maui)
1 tablespoon to 1-½ poppy seeds

Preparation

1
Directions:
2
Boil pasta as directed. Rinse under cold water and set aside.
3
Prepare lettuce. Fry bacon until crisp, drain and crumble.
4
Clean and cut strawberries, then set them on a paper towel to drain.
5
Julienne mozzarella cheese.
6
Combine dressing ingredients (except poppy seeds) in blender jar. Give it enough time to completely pulverize the onion and turn a pretty pink color. Remove to a separate container. Add poppy seed just before serving, stirring well.
7
Combine lettuce, spinach, and pasta, tossing until combined. Add just enough dressing to coat. Add strawberries, bacon and mozzarella last, stirring carefully to prevent breaking them apart.
8
Serve with additional dressing on the side. Store remains in the refrigerator.
