Spinach Strawberry Salad with Poppy Seed Dressing

This simple, yet elegant salad is paired with a poppy seed dressing.  Feta cheese, strawberries and pecans, never tasted so good.




Ingredients:

1 bag Baby Spinach
4 slices Bacon
Strawberries (sliced)
Pecans (halved)
Feta Cheese
1/3 cup Olive Oil
1/3 cup Red Wine Vinegar
4 Tablespoons Sugar
2 teaspoons Dijon Mustard
1 Tablespoon Poppy Seeds


Directions:

Cook bacon until crisp, let cool and crumble, then set aside. In a mini food processor or blender, combine olive oil, red wine vinegar, sugar, Dijon mustard and poppy seeds. Pulse for a few seconds. Place spinach in a salad bowl. Top with crumbled bacon, strawberries, pecans and feta cheese. Serve with dressing.

    That's an awesome combination, I always liked adding fruits to my salad, especially the sweet/sour ones since it adds a kick to the usual greens. Thanks for the recipe, I'm very curious about the dressing!

  7. This is another delish salad to try to make. I LOVE the strawberry but I will pass the pecan as my daughter has peanut allergy.
