I've began picking spinach from my garden! The strawberries have not rippened yet, but I see that one of the local strawberry farms has some ready for picking. In our household that means it is time for some strawberry spinach salad!
Strawberry Spinach Salad.
1 large bowl of fresh, cleaned spinach
1 pint fresh strawberries (sliced)
1 small can mandarin oranged (drained)
Mix together and toss with dressing.
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1/3 cup olive oil
2 tablespoons white vinegar
1/4 teaspoon poppy seed
1/2 cup sugar
Mix well and pour over salad.
This is soooo tasty and simple and doesn't require an oven. That is a beautiful thing in our hot and humid climate!!
