Winter Fruit Salad with Lemon Poppyseed Dressing

I love this salad! It's a great one to take to a party or just to eat at home. I have been eating varied versions of it for lunch pretty much every day lately. I will just throw in whatever fruit or nuts I have on hand. Yum! 

1 head Romaine Lettuce, torn into pieces (or spring mix)
4 ounces shredded Swiss cheese
1 cup cashews
1/4 cup dried cranberries
1 apple, diced
1 pear, sliced

Lemon Poppy Seed Dressing:
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup lemon juice
2 teaspoons diced onion
1 teaspoon Dijon-style prepared mustard
1/2 teaspoon salt
2/3 cup vegetable oil
1 tablespoon poppy seeds

In a blender or food processor, combine sugar, lemon juice, onion, mustard, and salt. Process until well blended. With machine still running, add oil in a slow, steady stream until mixture is thick and smooth. Add poppy seeds, and process just a few seconds more to mix. Pour over salad just prior to serving.
