A Christmas Tea: Winter Strawberry Salad

This salad is very pretty for a Christmas Tea. A bit different from the usual Poppy Seed Dressings, the sour cream gives this one a fantastic flavor.


½ cup sour cream
1 tablespoon sugar
2 to 3 tablespoons milk
1 tablespoon orange juice
1 teaspoon freshly grated orange peel
1 teaspoon poppy seed

6 cups salad greens
½ cup thinly diced celery
¼ cup finely chopped sweet red onion
2 cups sliced fresh strawberries

Stir together all dressing ingredients and refrigerate at least 30 minutes. Just before serving, toss together salad ingredients and dress.
