Spinach Strawberry Salad

We are enjoying strawberries so much. I finally got around to making a this-time-of-year favorite- Spinach Strawberry Salad. You may very well have your own version of this salad or have made the recipe in the Simply in Season cookbook. The recipe below is the recipe my mom has always used, so it's the one I use. It's really wonderful and celebrates the season perfectly.

Spinach Strawberry Salad (my mom's recipe)

1 large bowl full of cleaned, dried and torn spinach
1 quart strawberries, washed and sliced

In a jar with a tight-fitting lid combine:
1/2 cup sugar (or 1/3 cup if you like things less sweet)
2 tbsp. sesame seeds
1 tbsp. poppy seeds
2 tsp. minced onion (optional)
1/4 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
1/2 tsp. paprika
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/4 cup cider vinegar

Just before serving, place strawberries into your spinach bowl, pour well-shaken jar of dressing over the top and toss gently until all spinach is well coated.
