Strawberries and spinach join a pungent dressing in this unusual salad combo. Sesame oil and balsamic vinegar give this version of poppy seed dressing a bit more robust taste.

yummy! got rave reviews as a side dish for an easter brunch. wasn't sure how the strong taste of the balsamic would go with strawberries, but i need not have worried. adults and kids alike raved...big hit! didn't need all the dressing so kept it for a regular salad the next day ;) Read More

I cut down the amount of sugar by half in the dressing. Even though I tripled the amount of spinach and used twice the amount of strawberries, added string red onions, there was still lots of dressing left over. Everyone loved it, all the salad was gone, next time, will add more spinach and more berries. Read More

we loved it! It gives a full-flavor to the "same old" spinach salad with strawberries and toasted pecans. I loved that the carbs are low, and still rich in flavor. Easy to make, keeps well in the refrigerator. The touch of sesame oil kicks it up a bit along with both sesame and poppy seeds. Read More

Great salad! I cut the dressing ingredients in half, plus reduced the amount of sugar (I don't care for Splenda). I still had dressing left over, which is fine, because I will use it up. Just wanted to note this for those who don't like things leftover after making a recipe. Read More

This is soooo good!! I changed it a bit...1/3 c each of oil and balsamic vinegar instead of 1/2 c each. added chopped hazlenuts, thin sliced red onion and I used a baby green mix that was 50% spinach. also used a t of sesame oil instead of 1/2 t. Left out the poppy seeds...did not have any. This salad rocks!!! even had extra dressing. Read More
