Spinach and Strawberry Salad

Serves 8-10.

(Before you go and click to another page, take a minute to visit this rendition of the recipe.  My friend, Courtney, has a fabulous blog that waaayy outdoes mine when it comes to witty writing and photography.  See... you love it, don't you.)

This is a simple, yet delicious, summer salad.  The dressing is so refreshing, and sugary sweet!
Slightly adapted from: Paula Deen Celebrates cookbook

One (10- to 12-oz.) package baby spinach, washed and dried
1/4 c. sliced almonds, toasted
1 pint strawberries, hulled and quartered

1 T. fresh lemon juice
2 T. white wine vinegar
1/3 c. sugar
1 T. vegetable oil

In a large salad bowl, toss together the spinach, almonds, and strawberries.  In a small glass dish or jar with a tight-fitting lid, combine the lemon juice, vinegar, sugar, oil, and poppy seeds.  Whisk in the glass dish or shake if using a jar.

Dress the salad right before serving.


  1. Hey Tara! I'm doing a recipe round up with strawberry recipes from my favorite blogs. Mind if I use this one, giving credit to your blog and with the picture linked to your site? I've heard such rave reviews about it, I just haven't gotten a chance to try it yet. And it's good to see a recipe with strawberries that isn't a diabetic's nightmare! :)
