Sunday Salads: Strawberry Kiwi Spinach Salad with Poppyseed Dressing

It is the inaugural Sunday Salads post! I am so excited for this series for so many reasons. First and foremost, because with all of those frozen meals and the gardens overflowing, I still love to have fresh fruits and vegetables on the table for dinner. And what is better than a great tasting salad to compliment a meal. Or to be the meal for that matter!

Now, I find it a bit ironic that I started off Sunday Salads with a recipe that I can’t even eat! Yes, I am allergic to strawberries. BUT. Maybe you aren’t! And strawberry season is upon us so if you can enjoy them, please do (and have a few extra for me).

I will say that I enjoyed this salad minus the strawberries. I happened to have some kiwis about as they were on sale and I thought it would be fun to mix it up a bit and throw them into the mix too. After all, don’t you see kiwis and strawberries together quite a bit? And then I decided to get add some pizazz with some homemade candied pecans. Mmm. . . .well. I will let you let your taste buds do the deciding.

Strawberry Kiwi Spinach Salad Ingredients:

Poppyseed Dressing Ingredients:

  • .33 cups sugar
  • .50 cups grapeseed oil
  • .25 cups vinegar
  • 2 Tablespoons celery seed
  • 1.5 Tablespoons poppy seed
  • .25 teaspoon paprika
  • .50 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1.5 teaspoons minced onion


Mix salad ingredients together carefully. Prepare Poppy Seed dressing ingredients in a separate container and shake vigorously. Serve dressing on the side or add to salad just before serving. Allowing the dressing to sit for an extended period of time on the salad mix will cause wilting.

  1. I LOVE putting strawberries in salads! This looks fantastic! I don’t have anything on my blog with strawberry salads though, I usually just throw salads together and don’t blog them. :-)
