    In the summer, I crave ALL the salads and love to use fresh fruit and veggies that are in season. This strawberry spinach salad is the perfect way to incorporate those fresh and juicy summer berries, as well as lots of greens!

    What I love about this spinach and strawberry salad is that it’s super customizable! Add in as much or as little as you prefer. Some of my favorite additional mix-in’s are avocado and chopped red onion. Sometimes I’ll even throw in some protein like grilled chicken or steak.

    I love to use poppy seed dressing as my strawberry spinach salad dressing. It tastes amazing paired with all of the flavors and has the best creamy but light consistency. So delicious!
