A summer salad worth making!

It's so hot outside that turning on the oven to make dinner is the last thing you want to do! How about trying this refreshing spinach salad, perfect for this time of year? Fresh strawberries and spinach (and hopefully from your own garden:)) combine in this light and healthy meal. Enjoy!

Strawberry Summer Salad


  • 6 cups baby spinach leaves

  • 1 pound strawberries, sliced

  • ¼ red onion, thinly sliced

  • 6 crispy bacon strips, chopped

  • ⅓ cup feta cheese crumbles

Candied nuts

  • ½ cup pecans, roughly chopped

  • ¼ cup sugar

  • ¼ teaspoon cinnamon

Poppy seed dressing

  • ⅔ cup mayo

  • ½ cup milk

  • 6 Tablespoons sugar

  • 2 ½ Tablespoons apple cider vinegar

  • 1 Tablespoon oil

  • 4 teaspoons poppy seeds

  • pinch of salt

1. Mix all dressing ingredients. Whisk vigorously.

2. Place a skillet over medium heat. Add sugar to the pan and stir 3-5 minutes until sugar starts to dissolve. Once dissolved, stir in the chopped nuts until coated. Transfer to a plate to cool and sprinkle with cinnamon.

3. In a large bowl, combine spinach, strawberries, onions, bacon, and cheese. Toss with dressing.

Hopefully you'll be able to make this salad tonight, sit on your porch or backyard patio, and enjoy the beautiful summer evening!
