One of the best and easiest summer salad ever!

 This is one of the yummiest and easy to make summer salads. This is my new favorite salad for the summertime, because the flavors are sweet with just a hint of tart. I love the idea of adding toasted almonds to the mix as it gives this a bit of extra crunch. The salad dressing is so luscious and tasty—it pull this together perfectly with honey and lemon. However, you can use any dressing on a spinach salad or even use as a fruit dip. Sink your teeth into this divine and healthy treat. You are going to love this simple, yet delicious and refreshing summer salad.

For The Dressing :

1/4 Plain yogurt
1/4 vegetable oil
3 Tbps honey 
Minced zest of 1 lemon
2 Tbps lemon juice
1 Tbsp poppy seeds
Salt to taste
Whisk together all ingredients in a small bowl

For The Salad :

1 pint fresh strawberries hulled and halved


4 naval oranges Peeled and segmented

Blood oranges will also  work, I have used a combination of both, but you'll need the naval orange to add  contrasting color.

1/2 cup chopped fresh basil


1/3 cup sliced toasted almonds

Toss together all salad ingredient along with a 1/2 cup of the salad dressing.

Makes 4 cup servings
You can store remaining salad dressing covered  in refrigerator for up to a week.
