Baby Spinach with Strawberries, Toasted almonds, and Poppy seed dressing

I never used to be a big fan of spinach, but I’ve been eating salads at work for lunch for about 4-5 months now.  I’ve slowly gained more appreciation for it. Also knowing that it’s packed with Vitamin A, vitamin C, iron, and calcium makes eating it feel good. It also doesn’t taste as bad as I remember. I guess it’s true that your taste buds change.

As for most of the recipes I post, I changed up the recipe that I had originally found and posted the original link below! Loved this salad and I look forward to making it more!

Ingredients for Salad

  • 1 package baby spinach
  • 1-2 pints Strawberries
  • 1/2 cup toasted almond slivers

Ingredients For Poppy Seed Dressing

  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup avocado oil
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 2 tbsp. sesame seeds
  • 1 tbsp. poppy seeds
  • 1 tsp. minced onion
  • 1/4 tsp. Worcestershire sauce


In a small saucepan, toast almond slivers until lightly browned. In a big mixing bowl put washed baby spinach with strawberries. I served the toasted almonds on the side but you could definitely add it to the top of the salad if you know everyone eating it likes almonds.

In a small mixing bowl, combine all ingredients and stir.
