Strawberry and Spinach Salad

What a delicious salad!  It's hard not to like anything with strawberries and goat cheese--yum!  The salad dressing is divine, too.  If you don't have the sesame or poppy seeds, you can leave them out.  The mixture of oil, vinegar, and sugar is the main event.

You'll be SO glad you tried this.  Hope you love it!

Strawberry and Spinach Salad

2 bunches spinach, rinsed and torn into bite-sized pieces
4 cups sliced strawberries
2 oz goat cheese, crumbled
1/4 cup almonds, blanched and slivered
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
1/2 cup white sugar
1/4 tsp paprika
2 Tbsp sesame seeds
1 Tbsp poppy seeds

In a large bowl, toss together the spinach, strawberries, goat cheese, and almonds.  In a medium bowl, whisk together the oil, vinegar, sugar, paprika, sesame seeds, and poppy seeds.  Pour over the spinach and strawberries, and toss to coat.

  1. Delish, Mrs. Healthy!! There is a place in Sonoma where we bought peach and cranberry WHITE basalmic vinegar that is so delicious with strawberries. I wish I could teleport over there and eat it with you!!
