I am not very good at eating healthy. I have been trying to eat more salads, and I need something a little more than just lettuce and Italian dressing. I saw this Spinach Salad recipe and knew I had to try it. This salad has a serving of veggies and fruits!
Her dressing recipe had just a little too much sugar for me so I cut it down a little bit. I loved using Greek Yogurt for the dressing. It made it so light and so much healthier than mayo based recipes. You can make this salad to fit your tastes. I just cut up some strawberries and threw them over a bowl of baby spinach. They I added some sliced almonds.
Poppy Seed Dressing Recipe
- 3 Tablespoons sugar
- 3 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- ⅔ cup plain Greek yogurt
- 1 ½ teaspoons poppy seeds
In a container with a lid, add all the ingredients. Shake well and serve. It will probably last for about 2 weeks – if you don’t eat it all before then! (Or until the yogurt would have expired.)
If you are looking for a refreshing and delicious salad – you must try this. It is strawberry season and this is a great way to eat them!
Do you have any other recipes you have replaced mayo with Greek Yogurt? I am going to start to change it out for more things and I continue this healthy food journey!
