Summer Time Spinach Salad with a Creamy Citrus Poppyseed Dressing



It gets hot here in Arizona during the summertime! I am always looking for refreshing lunch and dinners to enjoy that don't heat up the house! This salad paired with bowtie pasta takes it up a notch and makes it a little heartier. Which means you can enjoy it for dinner as well as lunch!



I always love using Stonyfield Greek yogurt to create a creamy dressing to pair my salad with! I love using these 5.3 ounce containers because they are perfectly measured with the right amount of Greek yogurt to make a dressing for my family! 

There is some yummy salad dressings from The Cookful. Ever since I got pregnant last year I am been blue cheese obsessed! Mostly with a wedge salad. I can't wait to make this Blue Cheese Dressing from The Cookful! Are you kidding me YUM!


So here is how you make the dressing! Grab a jar and squeeze in the lemon and lime juice


Pour in the honey


Grab the Stonyfield Greek yogurt


Pour it in the jar and then pour in the olive oil


Then dump in the poppy seeds



Shake it up!

Taste and add salt and pepper if you would like
