Strawberry Spinach Salad

March 23, 2011 at 6:00 am Leave a comment

I’m not sure why this happens, but every spring I start enjoying spinach salads, we eat them throughout the summer, and every fall and winter they disappear. Maybe because this particular version is my favorite and strawberries aren’t plentiful in the winter? Whatever the case, I’m sure glad it is spring time and this salad has found its way back onto our table.  It’s fresh, light, and a great alternative to the traditional side salad.

Strawberry Spinach Salad
2 Tbsp sesame seeds
1 Tbsp poppy seeds
½ cup white sugar
½ cup olive oil
¼ cup white wine vinegar
¼ tsp paprika
¼ tsp Worcestershire sauce
1 Tbsp minced onion
10 ounces fresh baby spinach
1 quart strawberries – cleaned, hulled, and sliced
sunflower kernals (for garnish)

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.

In a large bowl, combine the spinach, strawberries, and almonds. Pour dressing over salad and toss. Refrigerate 10-15 minutes before serving.
