Pear, Raspberry, and Pistachio Salad with a Creamy Poppy Seed Dressing

Another fruity salad, what can I say? I had pistachios left over from this recipe, so I decided to make the most of them. This salad was perfect! I ended up with long pearl slices, and I served it like a salade composée. The Little Prince liked this one too, even though he never eats the lettuce. You could add feta or maybe cooked chicken if you want, but I made it without. That creamy poppy seed dressing would go well with just about any combination!

For the salad
4 cups romaine, chopped
1 cup raspberries
2 pears, thinly sliced
½ cup shelled pistachios

For the creamy poppy seed dressing
⅓ cup mayonnaise
¼ cup lactose-free milk
2 Tbsp. sugar
4 tsp. cider vinegar
2 tsp. poppy seeds

Whisk together in a small bowl mayonnaise, milk, sugar, cider vinegar, and poppy seeds (I just shook the ingredients together in a jar). Set aside.

In a large bowl, toss romaine, raspberries, pears, and pistachios. Add the poppy seed dressing and carefully toss to coat all of the ingredients. Serve immediately.
