Spinach salad with poppy seed dressingM
During strawberry season, this salad is one of my favorite salads.  I especially like using the local strawberries.  My co-worker shared a similar version of this salad recipe with me.
Crunchy apples, strawberries, walnuts and blue cheese come together with a slightly thick and sweet poppy seed dressing. You can choose substitute the blue cheese with feta cheese.  
 
Add this refreshing and colorful strawberry spinach salad to your next dinner party menu or simply have it for lunch.
