Strawberry Poppy Seed Salad

There is just something about being in my swimsuit that motivated me to start eating light and healthy!  When we returned from Maui, I honestly craved something light and simple.  (And that is NOT always the case for me!)  This strawberry poppy seed salad was the first meal on my menu!
It's not only a simple meal, but tasty too!  I'm not really a salad girl.  But this is the only salad I will eat as an entire course. I love the sweet strawberries paired with the salty bacon.  The best part of the salad, though, is the yummy poppyseed salad dressing.  YUMMM!
This is also a special meal for our family.  I always make it for our Valentine's Day dinner!  Something about strawberries just seems so romantic, so this salad always makes the V-Day menu.
