I love strawberries. What can taste better than strawberries in your salad?

Blue Ribbon Recipe

The plump, sweet strawberries make this salad a real pleasure... for both the eyes and the taste buds! It's a simple salad that has tons of flavor. The homemade poppyseed dressing is sweet with a hint of tartness. We think even the pickiest of kids will love this spinach and strawberry salad.
