  • Summary

    This strawberry, apple and pear spinach salad is easy, light and delicious. I've created a tasty mild strawberry poppyseed vinaigrette to go with it. This salad is loved by every palate; young and old. If you like a stronger vinaigrette, feel free to add more red wine vinegar. I've also tested this with cider vinegar and it worked well; although I liked the red wine vinegar a teensy bit more.

    Ingredients

    • 1 apple (cored and sliced)
    • 1 pear (cored and sliced)
    • 1/2 lb strawberries (hulled and sliced)
    • 2 Tbsp pumpkin seeds
    • 8 oz 1/2 lb Spinach Leaves
    • makes enough vinaigrette for 2 salads
    • 1/4 cup cold filtered water
    • 1/4 cup olive oil
    • 1/4 cup red wine vinegar (or to taste)
    • 1/2 lb fresh strawberries (hulled and halved (about 1 1/2 cups))
    • 2 Tbsp honey
    • 1/2 tsp poppy seeds
