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
  • 2-3 bunches fresh spinach (approximately 1½ – 2 pounds)
  • 1½ - 2 pints sliced strawberries
  • ⅓ c. sugar
  • ¼ c. apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tbsp. poppy seeds
  • 2 tbsp. sesame seeds
  • 1½ tsp. minced onion
  • ¼ tsp. paprika
  • ½ c. oil
  • ¼ tsp. Worcestershire sauce
  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.
