Kiwi-Strawberry Spinach Salad

I love this salad! Spinach, strawberries, kiwis and almonds covered with a delicious dressing make for one mouthwatering and healthy salad recipe. The salad dressing includes both poppy seeds and sesame seeds along with a raspberry vinegar, green onions and other seasonings that make it really excellent in taste and a perfect accompaniment to this delicious salad.

I have several spinach salad recipes–all with a little different spin to them or different ingredients in the salad dressings. I enjoy them all because I love spinach in salad. This Taste of Home recipe is one of our favorites and I hope it will become one of yours, too. The flavors and texture are marvelous, the recipe is low calorie, gluten free, and healthy. This is a great salad for company but it is one I make on a regular basis since I practically live on salads.

I initially posted this recipe in June 2012 the first month this food blog began. I didn’t know much about cameras or positioning food so it shows pleasantly back then. So I recently remade this recipe and took a few pictures to upgrade this recipe. If you’re looking for a great fruity salad recipe for company, potlucks, or just family meals, then give Kiwi-Strawberry Spinach Salad a try sometime soon. It’s wonderful.

Slice about 5 or 6 kiwi fruit into 1/4″ pieces. It’s about 4 slices per kiwi. Sprinkle almonds over top.

Make up the salad dressing: these are the ingredients you will need. I substituted honey for the sugar and it turned out very well.
