Strawberry and Avocado Salad with Strawberry Poppy Seed Vinaigrette

Strawberry and Avocado Salad with Strawberry Poppy Seed Vinaigrette
It's time for another salad recipe and this time it's a strawberry and avocado salad with strawberry poppy seed vinaigrette! Strawberries work so well in salads and I find myself making them on a near weekly basis all summer long! This salad combines so many of my favourite ingredients from the strawberries to the avocados, the BACON, and feta and the dressing is just so tasty and summery fresh! The strawberry poppy seed vinaigrette uses fresh strawberries with white balsamic vinegar, honey, tamari, mustard, garlic and a touch of sriracha for some spicy heat and it is just perfect on this strawberry salad!

I could drink this strawberry poppy seed vinaigrette all by itself, but it is so good on this salad!

The salad may look better all nicely assembled like above but it certainly tastes better once all mixed up!
