Ingredients

For poppy seed dressing:

  • 2 tbsp white wine vinegar
  • 1 tbsp granulated sugar
  • 2 tsp mayonnaise
  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp poppy seeds
  • 1 tsp fresh thyme leaves

For salad:

  • ½-312 g / 11oz pkg. baby spinach
  • ½-312 g /11oz pkg. arugula
  • 1 lb /454 g strawberries, quartered
  • ½ cucumber, thinly sliced
  • 5 radishes, thinly sliced
  • ½ cup toasted almonds
  • cup crumbled goat cheese

Instructions

  • In a medium bowl, whisk vinegar with sugar until dissolved. Whisk in mayonnaise, Dijon and salt. In a steady stream pour in olive oil while continuously whisking, to emulsify the dressing. Stir in poppy seeds and thyme.
  • In a large bowl, toss spinach with arugula, strawberries, cucumber, radishes, almonds and goat cheese.
  • Top with desired amount of dressing and serve. You will likely have extra dressing, simply and refrigerate remaining dressing. It will store for up to five days.
