Easy and refreshing strawberry salad with a vinaigrette poppy seed dressing. It’s a classic go-to summer salad perfect for any occasion!
Strawberry Salad With Vinaigrette Poppy Seed Dressing
I’m continuing to freshen things up this spring with a strawberry salad and vinaigrette poppy seed dressing. We’re eating salads almost daily now, which means I have to keep mixing it up.
This salad is a long-time favorite. It’s light, slightly sweet and of course, easy to make.
Fresh Strawberry Salad
I love summer salads because it gives me the opportunity to fill them with all my favorite fresh fruits. So, of course, I had to make this strawberry salad because is summer really complete without one?
The fresh strawberries add just the right amount of sweetness to pair perfectly with the tangy flavors in the rest of the salad.
Vinaigrette Poppy Seed Dressing
When it comes to salads I know that it’s always so tempting to just throw on some store-bought dressing and call it a day. I’ve definitely given in to the temptation plenty of times. I have to say though, that this homemade dressing is worth the extra couple minutes of prep.
This vinaigrette poppy seed dressing adds such an amazing flavor to this summer salad, without taking almost any time at all. What’s even better is that you can add it too almost any salad, like my Arugula Salad, or this Red, White & Blue Salad.
Perfect Strawberry Salad Pairings
I hope you enjoy this poppyseed dressing as much as I do! It’s great to bring to BBQs and picnics or to serve on the side for dinner. I love throwing this together with my Party and Picnic Sandwiches whenever I need to throw together a quick party spread.
If you’d like to balance this salad with something sweet, I highly recommend Michael’s Strawberry Hand Pies!
