  • 100g (3¾ oz) caster sugar
  • 1 tablespoon poppy seeds
  • 1 teaspoon mustard powder
  • 5 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • Salad
  • 1 (500g) bag mixed salad

  1. Whisk together the oil, sugar, poppy seeds, mustard and vinegar. Refrigerate until chilled.
  2. In a salad bowl, combine the mixed salad, mushrooms and dressing; toss to coat. Sprinkle with strawberries and pecans.

Tip:

Try adding some crumbled gorgonzola to this salad for an extra special touch. You could also try substituting half of the mixed greens with a combination of cress and rocket; the peppery rocket is particularly nice in contrast to the sweet strawberries.
