Summer fruit salad with poppy seed vinaigrette

Summer Fruit Salad with Poppy Seed Vinaigrette

This is now my favorite salad and dressing ever.  It was a great way to enjoy all of the fruits that are currently on sale at the store.  Romaine or spinach would also be a good green here.  I would have added some kiwi also, but mine wasn't quite ripe yet.  Mandarin oranges or toasted almonds would also pair nicely with this combination.

-butter lettuce
-peaches, diced
-strawberries, sliced

-6 Tbsp light mayo
-6 Tbsp olive oil
-3 Tbsp lemon juice
-3/4 cup sugar
-1/3 cup apple cider vinegar
-1 tsp salt
-1/4 tsp ground mustard
-1/4 tsp onion powder
-2 tsp poppy seeds

Whisk together dressing ingredients.  Toss with salad ingredients.
