RECIPE: Spinach and strawberry salad
2 bunches of spinach, rinsed and torn into bite-sized pieces
4 cups sliced strawberries
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/4 cup white wine vinegar
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 tsp. paprika
1/4 cup sesame seeds
1/8 cup poppy seeds
Mix the last 6 ingredients to make the dressing.
VARIATIONS: when strawberries are expensive, I sometimes add canned mandarin oranges, or substitute them entirely for the strawberries. For those who like nuts, I sometimes add sliced almonds.
