I got this recipe from my church’s 100th anniversary cookbook and it has been a favorite everywhere I have taken it. As an added bonus the dressing is good for just about any kind of salad. Also, it makes a great Christmas salad because of the red and green colors.
Carrie’s Note: I use Apple Cider Vinegar in this because I like the flavor much better, but balsamic is very tasty as well! I also leave out the almonds because nuts in my salad is against the rules 🙂 You can also add a grilled chicken breast and make this a meal!
Strawberry and Spinach Salad
- 1 Lg. bunch fresh spinach
- 1 Pt. strawberries sliced
- 1/2 C. slivered almonds
- 1/4 C. Sugar
- 2 Tbsp. sesame seeds
- 1 Tbsp. poppy seeds
- 1 1/2 Tsp. onion finely minced
- 1/2 Tsp. Worcestershire Sauce
- 1/4 Tsp. paprika
- 1/4 C. vegetable oil
- 1/2 C. Flavored vinegar my favorite is Balsamic
- Salt to taste
Combine the dressing ingredients with a blender or jar with a tight fitting lid & shake or blend really well.
Toss the salad ingredients in a large bowl
Just before serving mix the dressing again and then gently toss with the salad.
Don't do this ahead of time, the spinach gets very soggy.
