Val's Strawberry Salad

It’s “local” strawberry time here in Indiana and this is a wonderful seasonal salad. In fact it is so good you will even want to make it when local strawberries are gone. It’s prime time for fresh mixed greens and lettuces as well.

This is a beautiful salad to serve during the holiday season, I have a neighbor who always serves this at Christmas.


6 cups mixed greens/lettuces (spinach can be substituted)

1/2 pint strawberries sliced

sliced purple onions

1/4 cup Feta Cheese crumbles (optional)

Poppy Seed Dressing

3/4  cup sugar

1/2 small onion, diced

1 tsp salt

1 cup vegetable oil

1/3 cup vinegar

1 tbl spoon poppy seed

2 tsp dry mustard

Combine dry mustard, sugar, onion, salt, oil, vinegar and poppy seeds and mix well.  (I use a blender or mixer to emulsify with one strawberry, this makes it pink and creamy).

Pour dressing over mixed greens, onions and strawberries.  Sprinkle with Feta cheese and enjoy!
