This is one of my all time favorite salads! it tastes delicious, is absolutely beautiful and can be doubled easily if need be. I've actually quadrupled the recipe for church functions and have had many people ask to take "doggy bags" home because they enjoyed it so much :)

I make this often when taking meals to others...not only because it's delicious, but there's very little prep work involved! This is a salad you'll enjoy making....taking....and {eh hem} eating :)

Enjoy, my friends!

* This is a great salad for baby/bridal showers too!

Spinach Salad with Strawberries and Homemade Poppyseed Dressing

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...

Spinach Salad with Strawberries and Homemade Poppyseed Dressing

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

  • 2 cups sliced strawberries (I use an entire plastic container)
  • 1/2 cup slivered {or sliced} almonds

Dressing

  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup white vinegar
  • 1/4 tsp worcestershire
  • 1/4 cup sugar

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