Strawberry Spinach Salad

Strawberry Spinach Salad
Recipe Type: Salad
Serves: 4-6
Adapted by Lauren Feldman from a recipe from COOKS.COM This is one of Lauren’s family’s favorite recipes for spring
Ingredients
  • SALAD
  • 2-3 bunches fresh spinach (approximately 1½ – 2 pounds)
  • 1 1/2 – 2 pints sliced strawberries
  • DRESSING
  • 1/3 c. sugar
  • 1/4 c. apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tbsp. poppy seeds
  • 2 tbsp. sesame seeds
  • 1 1/2 tsp. minced onion
  • 1/4 tsp. paprika
  • 1/2 c. oil
  • 1/4 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
Instructions
  1. Wash and tear fresh spinach into bite-sized pieces.
  2. Combine dressing ingredients, mix well and add to the spinach; allow to rest in the refrigerator for about 2 hours.
  3. This will cause the spinach to wilt a bit, which is desired.
  4. Add the freshly sliced strawberries just before serving (if they are added before the spinach/dressing mixture is allowed to rest in the fridge they will become mushy).
  5. Alternately, if you prefer your spinach crunchy, you can toss and serve immediately.
