While my son, Judson, was attending college at Clemson University, I would bring this to the tailgates that we hosted for his band friends. His best friend, Byron, would request I bring the salad to every tailgating. That is how the salad got it's name. A friend of mine, Joann, gave me the recipe for the dressing and I decided to try it with a spinach salad I liked to make. The pairing was a great success. No matter where I serve this, I always get requests for the recipe from all ages.

How To Make byron's salad
Mix the sugar, sesame seeds, poppy seeds, Worcestershire sauce, apple cider vinegar and canola oil together in a small jar with a lid or a salad dressing mixing container. Set aside. Keep at room temperature. Note: Make sure to mix well when dressing the salad
In a large salad bowl, add the spinach, onion, strawberries, grapes, nuts and croutons. Mix well and dress with salad dressing. Serve right away so ingredients stay crispy and crunchy.
Note: May add some pieces of cooked chicken or steak if you want to make this a light and refreshing meal.
