Strawberry Spinach Salad with Poppyseed Dressing

Salad is one of my favorite things to eat, how about you? If you said yes then you’re in the right place.

i like to switch up my salad game though and make different ones so my tastebuds don’t get bored. Ha! Bored tastebuds sound like a bad thing.

Sweet, succulent strawberries are in season so this salad is a must. Pair this delicious salad with some plain goat cheese and a french baguette and you’ll be the happiest person on the planet. The creamy cheese and crusty bread compliment the strawberries so nicely.

This salad was a favorite when I was catering and honestly, if you’re wanting to treat your mom to a yummy lunch for Mother’s Day then this is your recipe.


Strawberry Spinach Salad with Poppyseed Dressing

4 servings

6 cups baby spinach

2 cups strawberries, halved

1/2 c sugared pecans or 3 T slivered almonds, toasted

1 3-4oz log plain goat cheese, crumbled or cut into slices

French Baguette cut into six slices - toasted


1/4 cup sugar

2 T sherry or white wine vinegar

1 1/2 t sesame seeds, toasted

1 1/2 t olive oil

1 T red onion, minced

3/4 t poppyseeds

1/4 t paprika

1/8 t salt

Add all ingredients into a jar with a lid and shake until combined. Let dressing set in the refrigerator while preparing salad.

Toss salad with dressing and divide among four plates. Serve with goat cheese bruschetta.

*You can add the goat cheese directly into the salad. I personally like to eat it in the salad AND on the toasted baguette.
