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!

I did not like this very much. I think the dressing was a bit much.

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.

Used mixed field greens with Blue cheese, red onions and toasted sliced almonds in a pan, then added sugar and let them cool for on top. Used 1/2 olive oil and 1/2 reg. oil.Balsamic vinegar also. Had to make it 2 nights in a row. My family agreed it is the best salad EVER!!! Thanks!

Great taste but definitely reduce oil by 1/2 and use olive oil instead of vegetable. Also know that this is not a salad that keeps if you mix it with the dressing as the next day the strawberries taste terrible since they've marinated.

This was nice and simple. We really enjoyed this salad. The dressing is very nice and light. It isn't overpowering. I added 2 strawberries to the blender when I mixed the dressing. Thanks for the recipe.

Very good. I used less oil and will use less vinegar the next time but very good. Topped my salad with the Kraft crumbles of feta, provolone, and parmesan cheeses. Also added Dawn's Candied walnuts from this site. Thank you!!
