Recipe Ingredients for Strawberry Spinach Salad

2 tablespoons sesame seeds
1 tablespoon poppy seeds
1/4 cup white sugar
1/2 cup olive oil
1/4 cup distilled white vinegar (or balsamic)
1/4 teaspoon paprika
1/4 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon minced onion (red onion)
10 ounces fresh spinach - rinsed, dried and torn into bite-size pieces
16 ounces strawberries (or mandarin oranges, apples, pineapple, blueberries, or bananas)
1/4 cup almonds, blanched and slivered (or walnuts)

Recipe Directions for Strawberry Spinach Salad

  1. In a medium bowl, whisk together the sesame seeds, poppy seeds, sugar, olive oil, vinegar, paprika, Worcestershire sauce and onion. Cover, and chill for one hour.

  2. In a large bowl, combine the spinach, strawberries and almonds. One thing I have learned is to put all the dressing ingredients in the blender and puree' instead of trying to finely chop the onion and wisk everything together. Add a few turns of fresh ground pepper Use balsamic vinegar. Use red onion. Add some fresh bacon bits Add a mix of blue cheese and feta cheese. Also, do not mix the dressing in with greens, as it will only wilt the salad. If strawberries are not in season, use mandarin orange segments or pineapple tidbits. It is also good with some grilled chicken added to the salad.I love the strawberries in the salad, but if you don't have them they can also be substituted for other fruits such as pineapple, oranges, or apples. A+ :)
