Marie Adams' Craisin Almond Salad

1 lb bag romaine lettuce
1 lb bag spinach
3 stocks of celery, chopped into small pieces
1/2-1 full bag of craisins
1 small can mandarin oranges, drained
1 green apple, chopped
1 red apple, chopped
*2 oz bag slivered almonds (candied)
1 small container of freshly sliced strawberries
1 container of Briannas' Home Style Rich Poppy Seed Dressing (I only use 1/2-1 container.)

Toss all ingredients together and drizzle poppyseed dressing over salad just before serving.

*How to candy almonds:
Put almonds in a small frying pan with at least 3 heaping Tbsp of granulated sugar. Cook on low to medium heat until sugar carmelizes and coats almonds. Brown almonds. Do not add to salad until it is ready to be served.
