Strawberry Spinach Salad

This is our salad of choice for many dinners and events!  My oldest son requested this salad with his birthday dinner recently!  It's a favorite - great for potlucks, family dinners, etc!


Baby Spinach
Strawberries, sliced
Chopped pecans or sliced almonds
Mandarin Oranges, canned & drained
Laurie's Poppyseed Dressing

Combine spinach, strawberries, nuts, and oranges.  Just prior to serving, drizzle on desired amount of the poppyseed dressing and give a toss!


Laurie's Poppyseed Dressing
1/3 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
1 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup vinegar
1 cup canola oil
1 - 1 1/2 tablespoons poppy seeds

Place ingredients in jar.  With the lid on, shake the jar really well.  Serve.
