Spinach Fruit Salad
1 bag baby spinach leaves
1 pint strawberries, washed, cored, and sliced
1 large can mandarin oranges, drained
1 large can pineapple tidbits, drained
1 c. blueberries, rinsed and drained
1/2 c. pecan halves or sliced almonds
1 Tbsp. poppyseed dressing
Gently mix all ingredients together in a large bowl and serve.
*Make this an awesome main dish by adding some grilled chicken strips.
If you have a nice glass bowl or trifle bowl, this makes a beautiful presentation.
I made this recipe based on a salad that Panera Breadfeatures in the spring and summer. They use mixed greens, though, and don’t take out the hard center veins in the leaves.
