Strawberry Spinach Salad

Sometimes something looks and tastes so yummy I feel like I should take a picture of it before I eat it to make it last longer. This strawberry spinach salad falls into that category. I ate it for lunch every day last week and enjoyed every bite! The ingredients? Spinach, strawberries, blue cheese, pecans, crumbled bacon (I just use pre-packaged real bacon bits) and some homemade sweet and sour dressing (see recipe below). I also like to add a few slivers of red onion if I happen to have it on hand. Note: this salad is just as tastey in the winter when strawberries are out of season. Instead, add a handful of dried cranberries and some chunks of granny smith apple. Delicious!

Easy Sweet and Sour Dressing

1/2 cup sugar
1/3 cup lemon juice
1 tsp dijon style mustard
2 tsp onion, chopped
1/2 tsp salt
2/3 cup oil (I use canola)
1 tsp poppy seeds

Put all ingredients in a blender and mix. Happy eating! :)
