Another winning recipe! Thanks to previous reviewers, I cut the oil by half (next time maybe even a little bit more), added 1/4 cup chopped red onions and 1/4 cup sliced almonds. Sweet but not too sweet and is very appropriate for this summertime weather! Presentation is beautiful and tastes even better. We all enjoyed, including my daughter, who is 5yrs old. Thanks Mona for posting this!

This salad is wonderful. Everyone (even spinach salad haters) go GAGA over it. The sweet, tangy dressing is heavenly when combined with the strawberries and spinach. This salad is always a crowd favorite, and it's always requested at potlucks and dinners. I always add a few strawberries to the dressing and let it sit in the fridge to cool for an hour or so before serving. The dressing ends up a beautiful pink color and the strawberries really dress it up! It's a nice way to bring back summer if you can find strawberries out of season in your grocery store, and goes well with just about any meal you could possibly think of.

I helped cook for a wedding this past summer, and the couple wanted a spinach salad with poppy seed dressing. This was a HUGE hit, and I had people calling me the next week for the recipe (even established cooks!). I was asked to make this salad for another wedding a couple months later. This is absolutely wonderful, I like the strawberries, but it is equally great with canned drained mandarin oranges.
