That is so different to anything I've seen before. I wonder if we hve poppyseed dressing here? Is it creamy, or like a vinigrette?

I had to Google some of the ingredients
Romaine lettuce- we call Cos lettuce
field greens- we call mesclun, or spring lettuce mix

and we don't have a poppyseed dressing so I'd have to make my own, but I think it would be well worth it. I'm typing this into my computer (with translations) to remember in the summer. Thanks Cheri
