Summer Spinach Salad with Poppy Seed Dressing

I never thought I’d use the words “kid friendly” and salad together…but I have finally found a spinach salad the entire family loves.

Oddly, Thomas has always been a salad fan. He’ll eat (or at least try) anything. Caroline on the other hand is super picky…so I had anticipated hearing her declare she didn’t like the salad before even taking one bite. But to my surprise, the sweet poppy seed dressing won everyone over and there was no leaf left on any plate at the table!

So without further ado, a kid-friendly spinach salad…

Also, if you haven’t already picked up this salad shaker, I highly recommend it if you make a lot of dressings! I’ve mentioned this shaker before in my Daily Favorites Post and use it several times a week!

And here’s my favorite spinach salad version with chicken!
