{spinach & strawberry} salad

spinach salad


As spring arrives in the pacific northwest, so do the strawberries.  We are fortunate to have them all through the summer and one of our favorite meals includes a spinach and strawberry salad.  I’m pretty sure we have this salad once a week, and almost always when entertaining guests for lunch or dinner in the summer.  It is easy and so delicious- all five of my men love it~  As with many of our salads, we like to add chevre if we have it.


strawberry & spinach salad


1/3 c. sugar

1/2 c. oil

1/4 c. white vinegar

2 TBSP sesame seeds

2 TBSP poppy seeds

1/4 tsp paprika

1/2 tsp worcestershire sauce

1 1/2 tsp minced onion

enough spinach and strawberries for you and your guests

(this dressing makes enough for two nights of salad in our house- with six people.  I occasionally half it if I’m only making one big salad but it can be easily stored in the refrigerator)

Mix dressing and toss with spinach and strawberries.
