Lemon Poppy Seed Drenched Fruit 'n Nut Salad

This salad is very earthy and you can't help but feel healthy while you're eating it.  The fruit in this concoction is actually some plums from my in-laws backyard fruit trees that the kids and I picked, dehydrated and then sprinkled with stevia powder.  Any kind of dried fruit would work though.  Here's some suggestions: dried figs, cranberries, dates, golden raisins, apricots...you get the idea.

Fruit 'n Nut Salad
1 head romaine lettuce, chopped
3-4 radishes, thinly sliced
2 green onion, sliced
1/2 cup pine nuts
1/2 cup dried fruit (figs, dates, etc.)

Lemon Poppy Seed Dressing
1/4 cup grapeseed oil
1/4 cup lemon juice
1 Tbsp. honey
2 tbsp water
1 tsp garlic salt
1 tsp dried parsley, or 1 sprig chopped fine
1 tbsp poppy seeds

Combine dressing ingredients into bowl or bottle and mix thoroughly.  Assemble salad and drizzle dressing over top.
