Strawberry Spinach Salad with Poppy Seed Dressing

This is another way, I used my strawberries.  Actually, I had three good salads to serve and we ate all three.  I have posted the Asian slaw and I have no photo of the chopped vegetable salad which had a delicious dressing.  I guess, I have to make it again.

Both spinach and strawberries are food that can be added to so many dishes.  When I buy spinach in bulk, I usually take two cups out and throw them into my main dish and it always makes it better.

Do you have a food that you use to change recipes on a whim?

Strawberry Spinach Salad  adapted from Taste of Home


1/4 cup olive oil

1/4 cup sugar
3 tablespoons white or balsamic vinegar
2 tablespoons sesame seeds
1 tablespoon poppy seeds
1 tablespoon sesame seeds
1 tablespoon chopped onion
1/4 teaspoon paprika
1/4 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1 package (9 ounces) fresh spinach, trimmed
4 cups fresh strawberries, sliced
1/4 cup chopped almonds

Place the first eight ingredients in a jar with a tight-fitting lid;
shake well. Refrigerate for 1 hour.

Just before serving, combine the remaining ingredients in a large
bowl. Shake dressing and drizzle over salad; toss to coat. 


  1. Howdy sweet Chaya! Hope you're doing well. Healthy way to serve your salad.
    Take care & have a lovely day.

  2. I love this salad! My version has a lot more sugar, so I'm going to use your dressing next time. I think it will still be plenty sweet and delicious!!!

  3. Hi Chaya,
    I've been mixing Spinach and Strawberries in my new nutribullet while I haven't been feeling well and I have learned to LOVE it! I think it's high time I try them both in a salad with some of your tasty sounding Poppy Seed Dressing!

    Thank you so much for sharing, Chaya...Now, I'm off to check out that Strawberry Soup!

  4. I love this salad! I make it a lot in the summer.

  5. Chaya, you know of my love for spinach. I also like salads that contain fruit. I could turn your strawberry spinach salad into a meal on its own. Thanks for sharing!

  6. I just love this Salad, the combination is awesome! Your place at our table is very special and thanks so much for sharing your wonderful food with all of us at Full Plate Thursday. Hope you have a fantastic week and come back real soon!
