Fancy Salad

For my mom's birthday she wanted spinach salad. So I made spinach salad. I had my doubts about it - I mean, it has lemon poppyseed dressing, which, frankly, sounds gross. However, I tried it, and it's pretty freaking amazing. 

First, make this lemon poppyseed dressing. Recipe here

Next, chop up delicious things like cucumbers and strawberries to put in your fresh spinach. 

I highly recommend being a dork and making your little sister take pictures of you with cucumbers on your eyes. All the cool kids are doing it. 

Mix up your spinach, strawberries, and cucumbers. If you want to be extra fancy, add things like walnuts, craisins, or Salad Toppings (my personal favorite). 

Pour in some lemon poppy seed dressing and devour. 



  1. That dressing recipe looks a lot like the one that my great grandma used to make, but hers had honey in it too. Yum!!

  2. I love strawberries! They definitely made the salad.
    Honey? Hm. The recipe I used called for a lot of sugar. I'm not sure I'd use both, because I really liked how the dressing I made was tangy...but I definitely prefer honey to sugar.
