Low Carb Spinach Salad

I won’t lie and say this was a family favorite. The men in my house wouldn’t even try it! They said that strawberries don’t go on salads. Well, they are wrong. This salad was amazing! I would be wiling to take this to a gathering/potluck (when we finally get to do those again). No one will be able to tell this is low carb/trim healthy mama s. It might not be a favorite of some men, but all of the ladies that tried it, loved it. If you don’t need quite as much, cut the recipe in half. Also, if you aren’t going to eat it all at once, don’t dress the salad in the bowl, dress individual servings. Store the leftovers in the fridge and eat throughout the week.

If you aren’t concerned with all of the fat in the mayo or are dairy free, use all mayo in the dressing. I lightened it up by adding in some nonfat Greek yogurt to the dressing. The dressing is a nice compliment to the salad. The fresh berries, strong feta cheese, and purple onion with the poppy seed dressing are a perfect combination. This is a perfect summer dish. No need to heat up the house, grill some chicken to go with this salad. This dinner would be great for a hot day.
