After a long, hot summer day, my family wants something cool and refreshing for dinner. I believe in the summer you need to enjoy beautiful, seasonal fruits. We will be eating lots of fruit salads (more to come). This yummy salad is easy and leaves everyone feeling full but not heavy. Serve as a side dish or add grilled chicken for the main entree. Gotta love strawberries!- Amanda
Strawberry Spinach Salad
1 T poppy seeds
1 1/2 t minced onion
1/2 cup white sugar
1/4 t Worcestershire
1/4 t paprika
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
1 bag (10 oz) spinach
1 pint (or more) strawberries, sliced thin
In blender, combine sugar, poppy seeds, onion, Worcestershire, paprika, oil, and vinegar. Blend well. If seems thick, add a few drops of water.
Remove stems of spinach (or not). Arrange on plates, top with strawberries. Drizzle the dressing over strawberries and serve.
To give a good punch of protein, add some grilled chicken.
