Recipe Share: Green Salad with Poppy Seed Dressing

This is one of my favorite salads ever. I've had a few different versions of it in the past - with slight differences in the dressing or toppings. This particular dressing recipe is my friend, Lynsi's. Just like her, it is lovely and sweet. I could seriously eat this salad every day, every meal. It is so light and refreshing and satisfying, too. And it makes a great go to salad for parties or baby showers or whatever shin dig you want to impress at. Try it; you'll love it.

Green Salad with Poppy Seed Dressing
Ingredients:
Spinach or Spring Mix
1/2 cup Craisins
8 oz. chopped pecans (you can toast and sugar these if you want - I only do if I have time)
1 cup sliced strawberries
1 cup avocado diced
1/2 cup Feta cheese

Other possible toppings:
pomegranate seeds
green apples
gala apples
raspberries
blackberries
blueberries
walnuts
almonds
blue cheese
goat cheese
mandarin oranges
grapes

Dressing:
3/4 cup sugar
1/3 cup apple cider vinegar
3/4 cup vegetable oil
1 tsp. dry mustard
1 tsp. salt
1 Tbsp. poppy seeds
1 Tbsp. chopped green onion

Mix all ingredients in a blender or food processor. Dress salad. Enjoy! (I usually use 1/2 the dressing and save the rest in the fridge for another day.)
