We have been enjoying summer salads. Chris will grill chicken and then we have a roasted vegetable with it or toss it with a fun summer salad. Love the Pear and Walnut Salad I posted recently. I also brought back the Mandarin Orange salad into our rotation.
I have had this Strawberry Salad in my recipes for years and just decided to make it again. I LOVE it. I made for the 4th of July. We extra greens and strawberries so we have enjoyed it for several meals - as a main course with grilled chicken or as a side dish. My hubby added feta cheese to the mix!
1 bag of spinach leaves or mixed greens
1 pint of strawberries, sliced
2 oz sliced almonds, toasted
feta cheese or another cheese, optional
1/2 cup sugar
1 Tbsp poppy seeds
2 Tbsp sesame seeds
1 1/2 tsp minced onion
1 1/4 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1/4 tsp paprika
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/4 cup cider vinegar
Mix all ingredients together and refrigerate overnight or 4-6 hours. Take out of fridge a little before serving to get to room temperature... or easier to shake and mix.
Toss salad and dressing just before serving.
