Strawberry Salad with Poppy Seed Dressing

Simple Clean and Homemade I Strawberry Salad With Poppy Seed Dressing

Strawberry season is in full swing and we have already used 3 quarts this week. We are working on our next two quarts right now. Lucky for us, they cost about $3.50 per quart freshly picked by the Amish. With our abundance of strawberries comes strawberry flavored food. We have enjoyed a few strawberry smoothies this week alone. I thought I would share this salad because so many other people also want to enjoy strawberries when they are fresh and local.

This poppyseed dressing is based on a recipe from the Welshfield Inn located in Burton, Ohio. While they no longer serve this dressing, they still have the other tradition, Chicken Pot Pie. The restaurant served this dressing on fruit salad as does my mom. For me, the fruit with dressing makes it real sweet, so I use it on a lettuce salad with a little fruit mixed in.

I like to put a little cheese on for the contrast in taste and color. This dressing keeps well for a few weeks in the refrigerator and is great for picnics.
