Strawberry Spinach Salad with Poppy Seed Dressing

Hi everyone!

As I previewed last week, I made a second recipe with the delicious strawberries I bought at a local fruit stand.

This is a very easy, but extremely delicious salad. My mom found this recipe years ago and we've always loved it. You actually make the dressing from scratch and something about it brings out the strawberry taste. Sooo good!

You can see all the layers of ingredients in the mason jar. This salad is so pretty, isn't it? I've always heard, "The more colorful your plate of food, the healthier it is." Makes sense to me!

Strawberry Spinach Salad with Poppy Seed Dressing

1 small bag of spinach
1 pint strawberries
1/2 cup sliced almonds
sliced avocado (optional)

Poppy Seed Dressing:
1/3 cup olive oil
1/4 cup sugar
3 tablespoons white or balsamic vinegar
2 tablespoons sesame seeds
1 tablespoon poppy seeds
1/4 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce

Make the dressing first. Add all ingredients into a mason jar or other container that seals. Shake up and let sit in fridge for at least 2 hours, but overnight is best. Shake before each use. Slice strawberries and toss with spinach, almonds, and any other toppings you may wish to add. Drizzle on dressing.
