Skinny Recipe: Strawberry Romaine Salad and Creamy Poppy Seed Dressing

It’s hard to believe summer is almost officially here. A classic strawberry salad is one of my favorite meals during this season. This recipe is as good as it looks, and it has less sugar and calories than the full-sugar version. I usually mix this up on the wings and bring it with me for lunch throughout the week.
