What’s in Strawberry Poppyseed Salad?

Strawberry Poppyseed Salad Ingredients:

Most of these ingredients are either fresh produce or homemade products, so the whole salad is just fresh, fresh, fresh! Can’t get better than that for a simple summer recipe.

If you want to make this into a full meal, try adding some grilled chicken breast on top for a little more protein. And of course you can always get creative and add in more fruit. Try throwing in some mandarin oranges, blueberries, or pineapple if you have some. Although I really love this recipe just the way it is! My perfect salad.
