fruit & poppy seed salad

This is probably our favorite "everyday", low-maintenance salad around here.


1 pkg. baby spinach or mixed greens (about 8 oz.)
1 pkg. strawberries, hulled & quartered
2 apples, diced
1 medium cucumber, cute in half & sliced
sliced toasted almonds
bottle of poppy seed dressing (we like Briannas brand)

Put the greens in a large bowl. Add all of the sliced & diced fruit. Add a little dressing at a time so it's not too much and then top with the sliced almonds just before serving (to keep them crunchy).

This is a spring favorite around here too. One thing we add is some sliced kiwi and mandarin oranges. :)

Do any of you think this would be a similiar salad to the one that is seasonal at Panera's??? It looks much like it, if you add blueberries and mandarin oranges.

Hi Becky--this is Janel, Brooke's sis-in-law...thought I'd check out your fun blog!...Brooke told me about it. Thanks for the great salad recipe--I think it's the one we had at the party?? Anyway, thank you also for the scrapbooking magazine--it's great to get some new ideas. Thanks for your help and generosity.

If your family goes through Brianna's dressing as fast as mine does, it can sure get expensive! I just figured out a copycat version that's close enough to please my eaters.

Definitely cheaper than buying at the store!
