Strawberry Summer Salad

1 small head of Romaine lettuce
About 5 oz. baby spinach
1 Granny Smith apple
1 Fuji, Gala, or Braeburn apple
1 1/2 cups sliced strawberries
1 cup craisins
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese

2 tbsp. lemon zest
2 tbsp. fresh squeezed lemon juice
2 tsp. mustard seed
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup olive oil

Place all dressing ingredients in jar and mix very well. Mix all salad ingredients in a large bowl.  Just before serving toss salad with dressing.  Serves 10-12.

The original recipe calls for 1/4 cup sugar.  Last time I made this I forgot to add the sugar and it was still good, just a little more tangy.  So for a healthier version just omit the sugar!
