How to Make Spinach & strawberry salad


  1. In a large bowl mix together spinach, strawberries & almonds
  2. In a blender add: vinegar, oil, sugar, poppy seeds, onion, sesame seeds, paprika & cumin. Continue to blend until all sugar has dissolved.
  3. Put dressing in an air tight container and pour on salad about 5-10 minutes before serving. The lady I got the recipe from does not recommend refrigerating the dressing as it makes the oil kind of harden. So if you prepare the day before leave dressing out on your counter.
