- - FOR THE DRESSING -
- 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
- 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
- 1 teaspoon poppy seeds
- 1 teaspoon mustard
- 1 tablespoon honey
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
- - FOR THE SALAD -
- 1 purple onion, sliced
- 1 1/2 cups strawberries
- 6 ounces baby spinach
- 1/2 cup Feta cheese, crumbled

Step 1: Make the Dressing: Whisk olive oil, balsamic vinegar, poppy seeds, mustard, honey, salt, and black pepper in a bowl.
Step 2: Make the Salad: (Optional): Place the sliced purple onion in a small bowl and cover with water. Let it stand for 30 minutes. The water will remove the harsh onion flavor.
Step 3: Cut the strawberries in half. Blanch & chop the hazelnuts.
Step 4: Place spinach in a bowl. Add drained purple onion, strawberries, Feta cheese, and chopped hazelnuts.
Step 5: Pour over the dressing and toss the salad. Serve fresh.
