Strawberries and Mixed Greens

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! 


Strawberry Salad

Salad:

1 bag of spinach leaves or mixed greens
1 pint of strawberries, sliced
2 oz sliced almonds, toasted
feta cheese or another cheese, optional

Dressing:

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.
