Fruited Romaine Salad

This salad was passed along to me while at the beach.  My friend's husband brought it home from a hunting trip - the lodge they stayed at served this salad.  The recipe calls for a neutral vegetable oil, but olive oil will work in a pinch.  If you don't like cashews, try toasted walnuts or pecans.

  3 Cup Romaine Lettuce                                                           Dressing
  1 Cup Cashews                                                                        1/2 Cup Sugar
  4 Oz Swiss Cheese, Shredded                                                   1/2 Cup Lemon Juice
  1/4 Cup Dried Cranberries                                                         1 Tsp Dijon Mustard
  1 Medium Apple                                                                       1/2 Tsp Salt
  1 Medium Pear                                                                         1/2 Cup Vegetable Oil

Chop lettuce.  Core and dice apple and pear.  Combine all salad ingredients, set aside.  Combine all dressing ingredients and pour over salad.
