Spinach Strawberry Salad

Spring is a great time to make this light, refreshing, and very tasty salad. It's a mixture of spinach, strawberries and kiwi, with a raspberry vinegar-poppy seed dressing. I first tried this salad at a camp last year, and like all recipes I take a liking to, I went home and duplicated it. It's so quick and easy, anyone can make it!

Strawberry Spinach Salad

1 nine oz (225 grams) bag of spinach leaves, ready to use
2 cups sliced fresh strawberries
3 kiwi fruit, peeled, halved and sliced

1/4 cup oil
2 TBSP raspberry vinegar
pinch of salt
2 tsp sugar
scant tablespoon poppy seeds

Toss salad ingredients gently together in a large bowl. Mix dressing separately, and just before serving, toss dressing over salad. Serves 6-8
