1-2 tsp. Dijon mustard 

1 TBSP. honey 

½ tsp. sea salt 

--- pinch of freshly ground pepper 

1½-2 tsp. poppy seeds 

 

INSTRUCTIONS

1.Wash and spin-dry the spinach and place in a large bowl. Add the strawberries and mix gently. 

 

2.To make the vinaigrette, place all ingredients in a small bowl and whisk well to incorporate. Taste and adjust the seasoning if necessary.
