Ingredients

  • DRESSING:
  • 1 cup cider vinegar
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon ground mustard
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons poppy seeds
  • SALAD:
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 3/4 cup sliced almonds
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 8 cups torn romaine
  • 1 round (8 ounces) Brie or Camembert cheese, rind removed and cubed
  • 1 package (6 ounces) dried cherries

Directions

  1. In a small bowl, whisk the dressing ingredients; set aside.
  2. For salad, in a heavy skillet, melt butter over medium heat. Add almonds and cook and stir until nuts are toasted, about 4 minutes. Sprinkle with sugar; cook and stir until sugar is melted, about 3 minutes. Spread on foil to cool; break apart.
  3. In a large salad bowl, combine the romaine, cheese and cherries. Whisk dressing; drizzle over salad. Sprinkle with sugared almonds and toss to coat.
Editor's Note: Swiss cheese can be substituted for Brie or Camembert.
