In a mixing bowl, whip together the egg white, water, and vanilla until frothy. In a separate bowl, mix together sugar, salt, and cinnamon.
Stir in the poppyseeds. This dressing is supposed to be pretty thick -- when you toss it with the salad it does thin out a little with the juices from the salad ingredients.
*I use canned pears because of the texture (soft!) and sweetness to them. Feel free to substitute fresh pears if desired.
The amounts of toppings are general guidelines -- we like a lot of toppings to the amount of lettuce.
