Strawberry Spinach Salad

Someone brought this salad to a pot luck dinner and I had to have the recipe. I have made it many, many times since then and I have been asked for the recipe every time I bring it somewhere. It is also a great way to get kids to eat spinach!”


2 tablespoons sesame seeds              1 tablespoon minced onion

1 tablespoon poppy seeds                  1/4 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce

1/2 cup white sugar                            1 tablespoon minced onion

1/2 cup olive oil                                   10 ounces fresh spinach – rinsed, dried and torn into bite-size pieces

1/4 cup distilled white vinegar         1 quart strawberries – cleaned, hulled and sliced

1/4 teaspoon paprika                         1/4 cup almonds, blanched and slivered
