Summer Spinach Salad

By Laura Powell, Real Mom Real Kitchen

Summer Spinach Salad


  • ½ cup vegetable oil ( I use canola)
  • ¼ cup chopped onion
  • 2 tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons cider or red wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1-½ teaspoons ground mustard
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1-½ teaspoons poppy seeds
  • 8 cups torn fresh spinach
  • 3 green onions, sliced (I don't always add this)
  • 2 pints fresh strawberries sliced
  • 3 large bananas cut into ½ inch slices
  • ½ cup slivered almonds, toasted (it works fine if they are not toasted too)


Place the first six ingredients into a blender or food processor; cover and process until the sugar is dissolved. Add the poppy seeds; process just until blended. In a salad bowl, combine the remaining ingredients. Drizzle with dressing; toss to coat. Serve immediately. 14 servings.
