Spring Spinach Salad with Strawberries

This salad is often topped with ingredients like sliced almonds or feta cheese for added texture and richness. The homemade poppy seed dressing, typically made from ingredients like yogurt, honey, Dijon mustard, and of course, poppy seeds, adds a creamy and tangy dimension to the salad.

Here’s a high-level overview of how you might prepare such a salad:

  1. Salad Base: Start with fresh baby spinach as your green foundation.
  2. Strawberries: Hull and thinly slice ripe strawberries and mix them with the spinach.
  3. Additional Toppings: Add toasted sliced almonds for crunch and crumbled feta cheese for creaminess.
  4. Poppy Seed Dressing: Prepare the dressing by combining plain yogurt, Dijon mustard, honey, a touch of vinegar (like Champagne or white wine vinegar), poppy seeds, and a bit of grated shallot for a punch of flavor. Whisk these together and chill until you’re ready to dress the salad.
  5. Assembly: Toss the spinach and strawberries with the dressing just before serving to keep everything fresh and vibrant. Top with almonds and feta, then give it one final gentle mix.
