Strawberry Spinach Salad

Strawberry Spinach Salad

Here's a recipe I posted about a year ago and thought about making it today so here it is again.  It is great for the spring and summer months.  I really like it a lot and it's good for you too!

1 lb. spinach, washed with stems removed
2 tbsp. butter
3/4 cup sliced almonds
1 pint strawberries, sliced

1/2 cup sugar
1 tbsp. poppy seeds
2 tbsp. sesame seeds
1/4 cup cider vinegar
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
1/2 cup olive oil

Mix all of the dressing ingredients together in a small bowl.  Cover and refrigerate.  Rinse the spinach, remove the stems, and spread out on paper towels to dry.  Place the spinach in a large serving bowl and refrigerate.

Just Before Serving: 
Melt the butter in a small skillet over medium heat and toast the almonds until light brown.  Spread them out on paper towels to cool.  Clean and slice the strawberries.  Add the strawberries and almonds to the spinach.  Pour the dressing over the spinach and mix gently.  Serves 5.

I got this recipe from Make -Ahead Meals For Busy Moms Cookbook.  It is delicious!
