Spinach and Strawberry Salad with Poppy Seed Dressing

WOW - how pretty, right?  And it's so simple - sometimes simple is best!  I did three ingredients for this salad - spinach, strawberries and chopped almonds.

The poppy seed dressing is amazing!!  I was trying to come up with one that did not contain milk or mayo to keep it lighter.  It is perfect.  A bit tangy and sweet and SO good.  

As I was preparing and eating this salad, I kept thinking of all the different add-ins I could do. Crumbled feta, avocado, red onion, grilled chicken, even bacon.  But like I said, sometimes simple is best and I loved this salad as is.  But I definitely will be experimenting with more flavors in the future!
