This isn't a great picture but the recipe is too tasty not to share!

Strawberry Spinach Salad

1 tablespoon poppy seeds

Add vegetable oil gradually, procession constantly. Pour over the spinach mixture and toss to coat. Sprinkle with almonds. Serve immediately. 

I love to make the poppy seed dressing on the weekends and take it with me for lunch all week long!
