Tear up the lettuce into bit size pieces. Slice the strawberries and chop up red onion (long slices). I eyeball the onions (just so the strawberries and onions are evenly dispersed).
Now to make the dressing! Mix the poppy seeds, mayo, sugar, mild and vinegar.....(I have one of those tupperware shakers that I put it in to shake it. It also is good to keep dressing in until you are ready to serve salad).
When you are ready to serve the salad, pour dressing on and toss!
