Toss together some Spinach & Strawberry Salad & then express your creativity!

I have to admit that I've played around with this salad for years☺ Once I get the basics into the bowl, if I have some pecans or cashews or slivered almonds - I'll pop in a few. I've even been known to toss in a few sliced mushrooms or dried cherries or a tiny bit of sweet onion. Make it, eat it and then let your imagination run wild! The bones of this delicious salad are there, your creativity will provide the rest!

INGREDIENTS
  • 2 bunches spinach, rinsed and torn into bite-size pieces
  • 4 cups sliced strawberries
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup white wine vinegar
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika
  • 2 tablespoons sesame seeds
  • 1 tablespoon poppy seeds
  1. In a large bowl, toss together the spinach and strawberries.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the oil, vinegar, sugar, paprika, sesame seeds, and poppy seeds. Pour over the spinach and strawberries, and toss to coat.

Yummm, there's just something about strawberries in a salad - sheer ambrosia. I make one a little different but I bet they're both just as good! ☺ Diane
