Strawberry Avocado Spinach Salad with Creamy Poppyseed Dressing

I am sharing with you today my favorite salad in the whole entire world.  Now that is saying a lot.   This is my go-to salad for any gathering and is requested every time!  The fresh strawberries and avocado help to make this salad delicious.  But it is the creamy poppyseed dressing on the top that is to die for!

I love that the delicious fresh strawberries are starting to come into season.  I saw at the store that the strawberries are starting to look amazing so I grabbed two cartons.   I was craving a fresh mouth watering salad, and I knew that I wanted to make this one for lunch.  I could hardly cut the avocado and strawberries fast enough before I ate them one by one.  I was able to toss everything into the bowl, and hurry and whisk up my favorite creamy poppyseed dressing.  This dressing is hands down one of the best ones out there.  It gives the salad such an amazing creamy and sweet flavor.  It completes the deliciousness of the strawberry, avocado spinach combo.  This salad will also become instantly a favorite!  You have to experience the amazingness of this salad and it is sure to impress your friends!

  1. This salad is really delicious and I love the poppyseed dressing. This is my new favorite go to salad for entertaining. Definately 5 stars.

  2. This looks amazing. Will definitely be trying this as, here in Thailand, strawberries tend to not be sweet at all, so I’m always looking for a good recipe to jazz them up a bit rather than just to pour sugar on them, which is what the Thais do 🙂 Thanks for this.

  3. Sounds delicious. I would just like to check that the sugar amount and vinegar amount have not been swapped around? Sounds like a lot of sugar…

  4. great salad, my grown son loved it and he not a salad person.. i made salad with all the ingredients, but i added blue berries and trader joe’s candied pecans.. just delish. thanks for a great recipe.
