Strawberry & Poppy Seed Salad

This is one of my all time favorite salads! The guilt free feeling of eating a salad for dinner is the best- but it’s even better when it is absolutely delicious! Living in Louisiana, it’s easy to get spoiled by our saucer sized strawberries, but even if it’s not strawberry season, or your state doesn’t grow them locally- who cares! Buy them anyway! The sweetness they bring to this salad is
ON POINT! You’ll thank me later!

Ingredients for 2 salads:
About 4 handfuls of baby spinach
Half of a package of ripened strawberries
(cut into small pieces)
1/4 cup of salted sunflower kernels (without shells)
1 cup of feta cheese

In a small bowl add-
1/3 cup of balsamic vinegar
1/4 cup of olive oil
1 teaspoon of poppy seeds
1/2 teaspoon of splinda or 2 packets

In a large mixing bowl add all of your ingredients.
Then add dressing.
Toss with salad tongs until all the ingredients are incorporated. When plating your salad, make sure all the ingredients are on the plate. (The feta tends to fall to the bottom of the mixing bowl so you may have to scrape the bottom of the bowl for it.)

Garnish with a few more sunflower kernels and some fresh cracked pepper and you are good to go!

Spring is just around the corner and this salad will get you ready for it in a second! Not to mention, your waist line will thank you!
