Delicious On A Hot Day (or anytime) Strawberry Spinach Salad Recipe

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

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!


  1. I've never tried strawberries or spinach in a salad before, but it sure does look pretty and delicious! Thanks for sharing.

  2. If you like spinach and strawberries I think maybe you may like it. :) The dressing really goes well with it too.
