Tips & Tricks

  • If making a large bowl of salad for guests or family, don’t put the poppyseed dressing on it until right before serving.
  • Avoid putting too much dressing on a salad to prevent it from turning soggy and watery.
  • Store leftover poppyseed salad dressing in a covered container in the fridge. A mason jar with a lid works perfect.
  • Shake or stir the dressing before each use.

How to make Strawberry Poppyseed Salad

Ingredients for a strawberry and spinach salad.

This sweet and creamy poppyseed dressing is a great compliment to any salad, but my favorite is a strawberry spinach salad.

To make an easy spinach & strawberry salad, start with a bowl of spinach greens that have been washed and patted dry. Cut or tear off the long stems.

Then add sliced strawberries, thin sliced *red onions, and slivered almonds. Toss lightly.

*Tip: If you soak sliced red onions in a bowl of cold water for a few minutes, and then drain them, they won’t taste so strong.

Right before serving, drizzle over some homemade poppyseed dressing and toss lightly. It’s so delicious!
