Reviews for Strawberry Spinach Salad with Poppy Seed Dressing
"I make this with chunks of avocado, slivered almonds and small slices of red onions Yummy!!"
"This was tasty. I added some feta."
"Quick and easy."
"I like the nice assortment of crunchy nuts and seeds in this salad. It went over well at our Easter get-together. I used the balsamic vinegar and omitted the chopped onion due to time constraints."
"I served this salad with a grilled steak. My husband even said that he didn't know if I could top this meal. The salad was so good. I used the white vinegar and substituted canola oil for the olive oil. Thinking about making for my side dish to bring for Easter!"
