Spinach strawberry salad on a white plate

This Spinach Strawberry Salad always shows up at church potlucks and family dinners. It is a simple and absolutely delicious strawberry spinach salad.

My sister Svetlana is a very creative and talented cosmetologist (hair stylist) and cook! She made this amazing Spinach Strawberry Salad for a family dinner a couple weeks ago and it’s quickly become my new favorite salad recipe. She made it again this weekend when we had family visiting from Washington and everyone was raving about it!

Here’s a tip: I’ve already tried it with red onion and found it to be overpowering, but the green onion/ chives are perfect! Hope you and your family enjoy this simple, yet tantalizingly good strawberry spinach salad.

Spinach Strawberry Salad Ingredients:

1 lb fresh Spinach
2-3 cups of fresh sliced strawberries
3 Tbsp chopped green onions or chives

Poppy Seed Dressing Ingredients:

1 cup of mayo
1.5 Tbsp poppy seeds, rinsed and drained
2 Tbsp of vinegar

    A Mother’s Day HIT!! Incredible salad! I added blueberries though could not find poppy seeds. The dressing goes very, very far and is so yummy. I was surprised how the green onions added a nice “pop” to this salad. Definitely making again and again and again.

    Hi Natasha! Have you tried to use chia seeds instead of poppy seeds? I was wondering if it would make a difference in taste? (I’m trying to incorporate the chia in as many recipes as I can since they are so good for you.) Thanks!

      Hi Marina, chia seeds will turn the dressing into gelatin the longer it sits so I would not recommend using chia seeds.
