Layered Spinach & Fruit Salad: As Easy As 1, 2, 3, Poppyseed!

Check out this perfect salad for summer. It's a fabulous salad to bring to a party, BBQ or just to enjoy with the family (maybe on Mother's Day?). It's so easy! 

You'll need:

  • 6 ounces blueberries 
  • 16 ounces strawberries (sliced to your preference) 
  • 2 cans mandarin oranges 
  • 1 - 2 bags of spinach (depends on what your store carries) 
  • 4 - 6 ounces candied pecans 
  • poppyseed dressing 

Here's how to make it:

  1. Put half the spinach in the glass bowl. 
  2. Sprinkle with half the strawberries, blueberries and oranges. 
  3. Repeat with half of what's left. 
  4. Then put the remaining spinach and fruit on top. 
  5. Sprinkle the candied pecans on top of that. Make sure they are scattered all around the salad. I like to have a mound of them in the middle. 

Leave the dressing on the side in a pretty dish or even a gravy bowl! Yummy!

I like to add Salmon to this or even grilled chicken. Sometimes I leave off the dressing and just let the flavors blend together. Yum Thanks Elisa All Schmitz 30Seconds, Meredith Schneider, and Shannon Watanuki!
