Strawberry Poppyseed Spinach Salad

Strawberry Poppyseed Spinach Salad with the most AMAZING Raspberry Orange dressing!

After all the desserts and a holiday weekend of indulging, let’s get back on the boat with a delicious salad recipe, shall we? Don’t worry, a killer dessert is coming your way this week. Meanwhile, what I love about this salad is how gosh darn PRETTY it is. Yes, a salad. Pretty! Which of course makes it perfect for entertaining. I used small glass dessert bowls for the salads and served them up with mini forks.

Courtney’s Tips

  • Hosting a backyard cookout or pool party? Avoid the glass by serving these up in clear plastic cups (yep, the cheapo kind). They make the perfect salad cups!
  • Customize it! Add grilled chicken or shrimp for a full meal. Or swap in blueberries or raspberries for a twist.

If you are serving a group, you can absolutely fill a large salad bowl with this tasty recipe! I just happen to think anything in individual servings is the cutest.

    Love fruits in salad especially during the summer months. Poppyseed dressing is one of my favorite dressings!

    These are beautiful! Plus, I’m currently obsessed with all things fruit. Especially if it’s slightly tart. Yum. These most definitely need a place on a summer party menu. :)

      Hi! It makes 6 servings so if you’re doing ‘minis’ like I did – it might be a couple more depending on the size of the container used.

    I made a salad like this for Easter and it was a hit. I added sugared walnuts to my salad and it tasted great! They are so easy to make too :)

    Have a good day and thanks for the recipe!
