Recipe Box: Strawberry Salad

Strawberries

I think most of us would agree, summer is the best time for a big bowl of fresh salad. Here’s one of my favorites. It’s my mother-in-law’s recipe, actually (although I made a few modifications…shhh, don’t tell her!) I added baby spinach in addition to the romaine (for even more iron and antioxidants) and substituted Greek yogurt for the sour cream in her original recipe. I also changed the plain white vinegar to apple cider vinegar (a little more flavor, I find).

Ingredients:

  • 1 bunch romaine lettuce, chopped
  • 1/2 package baby spinach
  • 1/2 red onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 cups halved fresh strawberries

poppy seed dressing:

  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon Greek yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • 2-1/4 teaspoons apple cider vinegar
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons poppy seeds

Directions:

1. In a large bowl, combine greens, onion, and strawberries.

2. Add all dressing ingredients to a jar with a tightly-fitting lid, and shake vigorously.

3. Pour dressing over salad, toss to coat.

Easy, delicious, and refreshing! Happy summer.
