I first had this salad at my sister's baby shower. I never knew I would like the nuts with swiss cheese....but surprisingly, they fit together great!!
1/3 cup white vinegar
3/4 cup sugar
2 teaspoons prepared mustard
1 teaspoon grated onion
1 cup vegetable oil
1 teaspoon poppy seeds
1 head romaine lettuce
1 cup cashews
1/2 bag shredded Swiss cheese
Combine the vinegar, sugar, mustard, onion and salt;
(I use a stick blender, works wonderfully!)
Mix until well blended.
Stir in poppy seeds.
In a salad bowl, combine the romaine, cashews and Swiss cheese
Toss with dressing right before serving
*regular mustard tastes MUCH better than brown mustard
This is our homemade pancake recipe. We love 'breakfast for supper' I usually make eggs, bacon, and sausage free gravy with toast on those nights. A favorite of ours!!
1 cup flour
1 tbsp sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 beaten egg
1 cup milk (or buttermilk)
2 tbsp oil
1 cup blueberries or chocolate chips if desired
The key to making pancakes fluffy: Mix all ingredients until just moist...don't overmix.
Spoon over hot griddle ( we use a large electric griddle, that way you can make 8 pancakes at the same time ) I have to eat pancakes "piping hot" Wes loves Maple Syrup with his.
