Posted by olemike on 05/15/2010

Leona uses this recipe from Allrecipes.com to make an excellent strawberry and spinach salad.  We have just enough strawberries to pull this off.  It is a great salad.

Ingredients (for two servings)

1 tablespoon sesame seeds
1-1/2 teaspoons poppy seeds
1/4 cup white sugar
1/4 cup olive oil
2 tablespoons distilled white vinegar
1/8 teaspoon paprika
1/8 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1-1/2 teaspoons minced onion
5 ounces fresh spinach – rinsed, dried and torn into bite-size pieces
2 cups strawberries – cleaned, hulled and sliced
2 tablespoons almonds, blanched and slivered


This recipe’s Ingredients were scaled to yield a new amount. The directions below still refer to the original recipe yield of 4 servings.

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. Pour dressing over salad, and toss. Refrigerate 10 to 15 minutes before serving.
