Prepare Today Homemade- Spinach Salad

Print Friendly and PDFPrint Friendly
This recipe came out of necessity because of all the spinach I had coming out of the garden.  It originally called for strawberries, but we had cartons of blackberries from a local grocery store sale and they were delicious too. 

Spinach and Fancy Lettuce from my garden.

Spinach Salad

2 T sesame seeds (I got a .87lb bag for $3.99 at Honeyville) toast them!!
1 T poppy seeds
1/2 C white sugar (or sugar substitute)
1/2 C olive oil
1/4 C white vinegar
1/4 t paprika
1/4 t Worcestershire sauce
1 T minced onion (I used about 1 1/2 t dehydrated onion reconstituted)
10 oz. spinach rinsed, dried and torn into bite sized pieces
1 quart of strawberries or blackberries
1/4 C almonds optional

Whisk together the sesame seeds, poppy seeds, sugar, oil, vinegar, paprika, Worcestershire sauce, and onion.  Refrigerate for an hour or more.

In a large bowl, combine the spinach, strawberries and almonds. Pour dressing over salad, and toss. Refrigerate 10 to 15 minutes before serving.
