Not sure where I found the original recipe idea for this but I have tweaked until it's something I just can't get enough of!! The picture posted is of an open-faced grilled turkey sandwich with this salad and dressing on it.. and OMG is it GOOD!! The salad by itself is a fantastic accompaniment to a healthy meal but if you want to try the sammie, I've added directions for that as well.

How to Make Strawberry Spinach Salad w/Creamy Vinegar Dressing

Step-by-Step

  1. In a large bowl or a large ziploc bag, toss together spinach, strawberries, bacon (optional), onion, and almonds. (I use a ziploc to toss the ingredients if I am only using one serving- makes for easy storage. Otherwise I will then pour tossed ingredients into a large bowl.)
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together mayo, sugar, vinegar, and poppy seeds (if using.)Serve on the side with salad. Store in refrigerator.
  3. ** For sammie--- Butter & grill 1 slice of whole wheat or ciabatta bread, both sides. As second side is grilling, add 1 slice provolone and 3 slices of thin turkey meat. Remove from heat. Top with salad mix and drizzle with dressing. YUM!
