Strawberry Arugula Salad with Lemon Poppyseed Dressing

August 19, 2020

This STRAWBERRY ARUGULA SALAD WITH LEMON POPPYSEED DRESSING screams summer and is one of my most favorite summertime recipes, when fresh strawberries are bursting with flavor!

I was never one to like fruit in my salads, but this recipe converted me. I also love to serve this salad when guests come over, because it looks fancy, but it’s not! But poppyseeds give everything an instant boost in the fancy department. Just go with me on that.

I hope you guys enjoy this recipe and be sure to leave a comment/review below if you make it!
