Strawberry Mango Spinach Salad

It’s strawberry season!  Does that excite anyone else as much as it does me?  There is just nothing like a good, fresh, local strawberry.  In celebration of this welcome, but brief season, here is a recipe for a colorful and delicious springtime salad.

Strawberry Mango Spinach Salad

¼ cup sugar
¼ cup canola oil
½ teaspoon Kosher salt
3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
1/8 teaspoon poppy seeds
4 cups fresh spinach
¼ pound fresh strawberries, quartered
½ Melissa’s organic mango - peeled, seeded, and cubed
¼ cup sliced red onion
½ cup slivered almonds, toasted

Place the sugar, oil, salt, poppy seeds, and vinegar in a jar with a lid. Seal jar, and shake vigorously to mix.

In a large bowl, mix together spinach, strawberries, mango, and onion. To serve, toss with dressing and sprinkle with almonds.

Hurrah for strawberry season! The colors in your salad are as beautiful as the flavors are delicious! I never have any luck with buying a good, ripe mango.
