Spinach Strawberry Salad with Honey Poppy Seed Dressing

With strawberries all over at the grocery store, it just makes sense to make strawberry spinach salad. Sweet, yummy, and topped with a really great home made dressing, I could eat a huge bowl of this salad for lunch. We also really loved the dressing on a chopped green salad. You don't really need measurements for the salad, just toss it all up in a bowl and let every one put dressing on their own.


adapted from Canadian Living

1/2 cup Greek yogurt
2 tbsp liquid honey
4 tsp lemon juice
1 tsp poppy seeds
1 tsp Dijon mustard
1/4 tsp paprika
pinch salt

Combine all in a bowl and whisk together until combined. I pour my dressings in a jam jar, screw on a lid, and keep them in the fridge. This one will last up to 5 days.

Makes 2/3 cup

Spinach salad:

Washed, trimmed spinach
1/4 cup thinly sliced red onion
washed, cored, and sliced strawberries
handful of pecans, toasted

There's no recipe for this really. Fill up your bowl with spinach, then toss with the onion and strawberries. You can adjust this to taste, really. Sprinkle with some chopped pecans and serve with the dressing.
