Strawberry & Spinach Salad with Homemade Poppyseed Dressing

This is a tasty salad that can be customized to your liking. It's all about the delicious poppy seed dressing. I got inspired from Lauren's Latest and made it a bit more healthy. It's light, it's great for summer and it's so delicious but you won't feel guilty!

6-8 cups baby spinach
2 cups sliced fresh strawberries
1-2 cup grapes 
1/2 cup almonds (optional)
6 slices of bacon or turkey bacon (optional)

1 cup plain Greek yogurt (for healthy Greek yogurt, read the label and make sure no sugar is added. Target brand, Simply Balanced, is what I use) OR condensed coconut milk for Paleo diet
1/4 cup white vinegar
4 Tbsp honey
1 to 1 1/2 tsp poppy seed

You won't need too many directions because it's simple. Put all the ingredients for the salad in a large bowl and toss. Put all the dressing ingredients in a separate bowl and mix well.
If you're going to have leftovers, don't mix the salad and dressing. Put the salad in individual bowls. 

Pour the dressing over the salad and enjoy without guilt!
