Strawberry Spinach Salad with Homemade Poppyseed Dressing

Janelle from Comfy In The Kitchen has the perfect recipe for all of us who are working on eating healthier – a beautiful Strawberry Spinach Salad!  She writes:
This is one of  my all-time favorite salads! It tastes delicious, is absolutely beautiful, and can be doubled. I have actually quadrupled the recipe for church functions and have had many people ask to take “doggy bags” home because they enjoyed it so much :) 
Let me calm you..it is not scary to make your own dressing!!! I promise! Worcestershire sauce, olive oil, vinegar, sugar, onion, poppy seeds, sesame seeds (you may not have these- they are with the spices in the grocery store)
Whisk together- that is IT! Now you can breath..AHhhhhh…
I use pre-packaged baby spinach and just toss it in a nice bowl (I do not remove my stems), then add sliced strawberries and slivered almonds.
Toss with dressing and refrigerate until ready to serve! Isn’t this beautiful? Oh, I just love it.

 

Strawberry Spinach Salad
1 10oz bag of baby spinach (or appx 6 cups of leaves)
2 cups sliced strawberries (I use an entire plastic container)
1/2 cup slivered almonds

Dressing

1/2 cup olive oil
1/4 cup white vinegar
1/4 tsp worcestershire
1/4 cup sugar
2 Tbsp sesame seeds
1 Tbsp poppy seeds
1/4 cup minced white onion

Whisk all the dressing ingredients together.
Place clean spinach in a bowl and top with sliced strawberries and almonds.
Toss with dressing.

We are so blessed to have one another as Sisters in Christ…the internet is an amazing thing isn’t it? We can “meet” one another from across the globe and share our love for Christ with each other! Even in areas that are not predominately Christian, a person can “log on” and feel connected in fellowship. God is good.

Love to you all,

Janelle
