"Delicious. I agree 3 T sugar is plenty. It's an excellent dressing that I expect to use frequently on greens and berries. Thanks for posting! Oh, and I broke up a few toasted walnuts that I had handy and added them. I like crunch :-)"
"This salad was divine! I had to change a couple of things because I didn't have them but nevertheless this is a super dressing. I used agave instead of sugar. I didn't have strawberries but I had little oranges and they tasted fabulous! I made it for a friend I had to dinner and she loved it!"
"My family LOVE this recipe. I'm always looking for ways to get veggies (specially spincacy) into my carnivore loving family and decided to try this. So glad I did, the compo of strawberries with the salad was awesome with the onion (I sliced a sweet onion VERY thin) made it not only easy to prepare but so fresh tasting. The dressing was the perfect topping. Light and creamy with just the right tang. The poppy seeds are a must in my book. I only added about a 1/2 tablespoon of sugar as we like our dressing tart and that seemed to work out great. It did make a large amount of dressing but I'll use that on a repeat tonight as we enjoyed it that much."
"I was looking for a creamy recipe for a strawberry spinach salad and was happy to find yours....exactly what I was looking for. Halved the recipe as just two of us, used 1 tablespoon of sugar and I tablespoon of maple syrup. Thanks for posting this will be a new family favorite at our house."
"This was incredibly yummy. Didn't think I was going to like it when I tasted it before adding it to the salad - tasted a little too mayonnaisy for me, but on the sald it was absolutely perfect. I agree that 3 Tbsp of sugar is plenty. The only only thing I changed was that I didn't have any red onion so I chopped up a couple green onions and it was delicious. I also added some toasted chopped pecans and I will definitely do that again. Toasted walnuts or almonds would also be good. Thanks for the great recipe, which I will be making over and over again especially right now while fresh strawberries are so good and reasonably priced."
"Yummy summer time salad. I used 3 tbs. of sugar & red wine vinegar. I will be making this again & again!!"
"I made this for my Mom and grandmother for mother's day. It was so easy and the best salad I have had in a long long time! I agree 3 Tbsp. of sugar was plenty. thanks for a good recipe. Will make again!"
"I made this while camping earlier this week. Everyone loved it!Thankyou for posting."
"This made a fabulous lunch! I especially loved the dressing and the poppy seeds gave it a little crunch. All the flavors complimented each other so well. Thank you cookin-jo! I'm so glad I adopted you for PAC!"
