Strawberry Spinach Salad With Creamy Poppy Seed Dressing

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Jami Robin

I got the base of this recipe from and added a few things myself. The dressing makes this fantastic. This has disappeared quickly every time I serve it! You could also use toasted pecans, blue or gorgonzola cheese, and mandarin oranges instead of strawberries to change it up.

Delicious summer salad. I made this with fresh ingrediants from our local farm stand. Awesome salad to bring to a party. Loved it!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large bowl, mix the spinach, onion, and sliced strawberries.
  2. Place crumbled feta and candied pecans on top of the salad.
  3. Place the sugar, salt, vinegar, oil, and 2 whole strawberries in a blender or food processor and blend until smooth. Stir in the poppy seeds.
  4. Just before serving, pour desired amount of dressing over the salad, and toss to coat.
  5. Tip: If planning on having leftovers, keep dressing on the side as salad will be too soggy to keep the next day.
