I seriously can’t handle how creative and talented these ladies are. So different, yet all so beautifully scrumptious!
The recipe I chose is a sprintime favorite of mine that I like to pair with chicken breast of as a dinner side salad. Strawberry Arugula Salad with Poppyseed Dressing. It’s gluten free and grain free 😀 I share my favorite poppyseed dressing at the end of the post!
I used a base of arugula. Feel free to use spinach, kale, or mix different greens together.
Strawberry Arugula Salad with Poppyseed Dressing
- -handful of arugula
- -5-10 sliced strawberries
- -1 tablespoon slivered almonds
- -1 oz. gorgonzola cheese, shredded/crumbled
- -1/2 avocado, sliced
- -1 tablespoon poppyseed dressing
I didn’t say this in the recipe, but I have been adding a fresh squeeze of lemon to EVERYTHING lately. So fresh and so clean.
If you are ever looking for an easy poppyseed dressing…Marzetti is one of my favorite brands. Yes it has some added sugar in it…but it is certified gluten free and I’m all about things in moderation. Just my two sense 😀
