Pretty Summer Strawberry Spinach Salad

Here's a recipe for a great summer salad that I got from a good friend who is a great cook - and very discerning with which recipes she uses. She has that ability to look through magazines for a long time to find the perfect recipe - then reproduce it from the recipe with precision each time. A lot of the time I improvize or substitute even from a recipe when cooking (not when baking) thus I don't have the precision she does. I envy that of her - maybe consistency is a good thing. Here's the salad, folks!

Strawberry Spinach Salad

1 package Strawberries $1. 99
1 red onion .30
½ head lettuce (or ½ bag iceberg lettuce).40
1 bag baby spinach $1.99
3 kiwi

¾ cup mayo
2 tbsp cider vinegar
1 tablespoon poppy seeds
1/3 cup sugar
¼ cup milk

Prepare dressing and chill. Slice onions into thin rings. Slice strawberries and kiwi. Mix onions, lettuce and fruit. Add dressing right before serving.
