Strawberry Spinach Salad

Strawberry Spinach Salad

The perfect Summer Salad!

I found this recipe at and loved it. Also great to add grilled chicken to!


  • 1 cup pecans (toasted & chopped or DIY)

  • 1/2 small red onion, very thinly sliced

  • 10 ounces fresh organic baby spinach

  • 1 quart strawberries, sliced

  • 3/4 cup cups crumbled goat cheese

    For the poppy seed dressing:

  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar

  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

  • 1 1/2 tablespoons poppy seeds

  • 1 1/2 tablespoons honey

  • 1/2 teaspoon dijon mustard

  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

  • 1/8  teaspoon black pepper



Pecans: I buy the toasted chopped pecans from Trader Joe’s. If you are buying whole raw pecans, toast them in the oven (350 degrees, for about 5-10 minutes) then chop them.

Onions: Place the sliced onions in a bowl of water. This helps mellow out the flavor.

Dressing: whisk the dressing ingredients together.

Add the spinach, strawberries, and onions to a serving bowl.

Drizzle some dressing over the top and toss. Before serving, add in cheese and pecans.
