One of my favorite blogs posted about this salad, and at the last minute I decided to add it to my Easter Dinner (which we had a day early). It was delicious! I just love fresh fruit/berries in a greens salad (it's only a recent fave). I of course adapted the recipe a little using a greens mix, and then forgot to add the red onions to my salad! The dressing was a little too sweet, so next time I'll cut back on the sugar, otherwise I loved this salad!
Strawberry Salad with Poppy Seed Dressing
adapted from Your Homebased Mom
Mixed greens salad mix
Red onion, chopped (as much as you like)
Sugared Almonds (1/2 C nuts to 1/4 sugar)
Poppy Seed Dressing (below)
Combine spinach and dressing and top with strawberries, nuts and red onion.
Combine a 1/2 cup of almonds along with 1/4 cup of sugar in a small frying pan over medium heat and continuously stir. One sugar starts to dissolve, keep a close eye on it so the nuts don't over cook and burn. Once glazed, remove nuts to a plate to cool, then break apart to crumble over salad.
Poppy Seed Dressing:
1/2 canola oil
1/4 C apple cider vinegar
1/3 C sugar (or less)
1 Tbsp poppy seeds
1 1/2 tsp dried minced onion
1/4 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1/4 tsp paprika
Mix together ingredients well and pour over salad.
