Strawberry Spinach Salad with Mustard Poppy Seed Vinaigrette

I could go on and on about this salad, particularly the dressing. I first had this at a Relief Society activity, then I made it for my cousin's baby shower and on Saturday I served it at my future sister-in-law's bridal shower. It has been a total hit every time it's been served and I'm absolutely in love with it. This is my kind of salad. Nuts, berries and cheese mixed with a homemade vinaigrette. You've got to make this the next chance you get. You won't be disappointed.

1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/3 cup white vinegar

1 (lb.) bag spinach or other lettuce
1/2 cup shredded Parmesan, mozzarella or Swiss cheese
8 oz. strawberries, sliced

1. Mix all of the dressing ingredients in blender until combined and set aside.
