  • 3 tablespoons white wine vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons pure cane sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon poppy seeds

  • 1 6-oz. package fresh baby spinach
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen edamame, cooked according to package directions and cooled
  • ¼ cup fresh chives, cut into ½-inch pieces
  • ¼ cup sliced almonds, toasted

Instructions

  1. For the dressing, in a blender or food processor combine 1 cup of the strawberries, the vinegar, the sugar, and the mustard. Cover and blend or process until smooth. Stir in the poppy seeds
  2. Grill the pineapple, covered, over medium-high 6 to 8 minutes or until grill marks appear, turning once; cool. Cut into bite-size pieces.
  3. In an extra-large bowl combine the remaining strawberries, the pineapple, the spinach, the edamame, and the chives. Drizzle with dressing; toss. Top with almonds.
