This is a simple salad that is beautiful, delicous and versatile! Basically it is made of baby spinach, fresh fruit slices, crumbled or grated cheese, toasted nuts, and seeds (opt. chopped green onions). Usually I make it w/sliced strawberries, grated mozerella and toasted almond slices. Another combination I like is, baby spinach, firm pear or apple slices, grated cheddar and toasted almonds. However, I recently tried a new combination! Here goes:

baby spinach

peach, fresh, cut into thin slices


freshgorgonzola cheese crumbles

almond slices,

toasted to a light brown

sesame seeds
poppy seeds

Layer all of the above in a pretty salad bowl. Before serving drizzle lightly with, Poppy Seed Dressing, toss and serve with addition dressing, on the side.

Poppy Seed Dressing

2/3 cup of vinegar

1 small red onion ( white onion, for white dressing)

3 tbsp. dry mustard

2 tsp. salt

1 cup of oil

1 cup of sugar............(can use splenda)

1 tbsp. of poppy seeds

Mix in the blender...just a minute or so. Refrigerate in a glass jar with lid. Good on salad or fresh fruit.
