Mixed Baby Greens with Strawberries, Gorgonzola and Poppy Seed Dressing Recipe

Mixed Baby Greens with Strawberries, Gorgonzola and Poppy Seed Dressing

This delicious salad is perfect for this time of year or throughout the summer. Mixed organic baby greens such as baby kale and baby spinach (side bar, I am looooving Organic Girl’s I heart baby kale mix), are tossed with sliced strawberries, slivered almonds and crumbled Gorgonzola cheese. The dressing is a simple vinaigrette with honey, poppy seeds and shallots.  This makes a wonderful light lunch or a perfect side salad to serve it with grilled chicken.

 

I love fruit in my salads, especially when combined with the

texture of nuts such as almonds and a soft cheese such as Gorgonzola.

The sweetness of the strawberries compliments the cheese, and the poppy

seed dressing ties it all together. This recipe was first posted back in

2008, before I owned a decent camera and the photo was so embarrassing,

I decided to let it shine and give it a photo makeover.

You can swap the almonds for any nut you like, such as walnuts or pecans and the cheese can be swapped with goat cheese. For Paleo diets, leave out the cheese and use raw honey in the dressing.
