I found this salad on one of my favorite recipe sites, all recipes. I have made it kaboodles of times and every time it was delicious. We had tried it with different fruit too such as cranberries, blueberries and dried fruits.


2 tablespoons sesame seeds

1 tablespoon poppy seeds

1/2 cup white sugar – I think this is WAY too much so I usually use about 1/8th of a cup, but adjust accordingly to your liking

1/2 cup olive oil

1/4 cup white vinegar

1/4 teaspoon paprika

1 pack of strawberries- sliced

1 pack of spinach

handful of blanched and slivered almonds

1 tablespoon minced onions – we hate raw onions so I leave this out


1. In a medium bowl whisk sesame and poppy seeds, sugar, olive oil, vinegar and paprika. Cover and chill for 1 hour

2. combine spinach, strawberries and almonds, toss with dressing (remember to stir dressing because the sugar clumps and settles on bottom)
