This was introduced to me by a good friend, for which I thank her. I believe she may be reading this now. If so, thanks Donna!
I would never have thought to put these two together in a salad but for me, it works wonderfully. Enjoy!
6 cups of roughly torn leaf spinach (about 1lb or 1/2 a kilo) and 2 cups of strawberries, sliced. If you are feeding quite a few people, then do the full quantity. I did one third the quantity, 150 grams spinach and 2/3 cups sliced strawberries which was only 6-7 small/medium strawberries. Having eaten it i wish I had made more! You really do not have to get your measuring cups out for this.These are leaves, and strawberries,people. Just mix it all up, adding sliced strawberries until you are happy with the ratio.
- 2T apple cider (or white wine)vinegar
- 1 1/2 t sesame seeds
- 3/4 t poppy seeds
- 1 1/2 t extra virgin olive oil
- 1 t red onion, finely chopped (or more, to taste)
- 1/4 t paprika
- 1/8 t salt
- 1/4 cup honey
Put all ingredients into a jar (lidded!) and shake well, add to salad. If you make the dresing beforehand as I did, the sesame seeds look a little sorry, so I garnished with fresh ones, liberally. The longer you leave the salad, obviously, the more the spinach will wilt down, so it’s up to you. I ate it immediately.
