1 bunch spinach, rinsed
10 large strawberries, sliced
½ cup white sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup white wine vinegar (I use balsamic or rice vinegar)
1 cup vegetable oil (I only use ½ cup)
1 tablespoon poppy seeds
½ large bag of sliced almonds (or however many you want)
White sugar (I just dump some in – maybe 1/3 to ½ cup)
- In a large bowl, mix the spinach and strawberries.
- In a blender, place the ½ cup sugar, salt, vinegar, and oil, and blend until smooth. (you can also do this with a hand mixer) Stir in the poppy seeds.
- Sauté the almonds and sugar over medium heat until the sugar melts, stirring constantly. Cool. Add the almonds to the salad just before serving.
- Pour the dressing over the spinach and strawberries, and toss to coat. (just before serving)
