Strawberry season is coming to a close, so I am sneaking in as many recipes featuring strawberries as I can. I love them! Usually I post dessert recipes with strawberries, but this time I’m sharing a yummy salad recipe. I love this strawberry spinach salad, and I sure wish I could have it all year long. The combination of flavors in the salad and homemade dressing is awesome! If you like spinach salad, you’ve gotta give this a try!
Strawberry Spinach Salad
1/3 cup sugar
3/4 cup slivered or sliced almonds
1 pound fresh strawberries, sliced
2 bags fresh spinach
Saute the sugar and almonds in a medium hot non-stick skillet till sugar melts and almonds turn golden brown. If you need to, you can add a few drops of water. Stir constantly and watch closely, they can burn fast once the sugar starts to melt! Cool completely.
Serve spinach salad with sliced strawberries, candied almonds, and strawberry dressing.
1/4 cup vinegar
1/2 cup oil
1/2 tsp salt
1/3 cup strawberry jam
1/4 cup sugar
2 tsp poppy seeds
Whisk all ingredients together till sugar is dissolved. Serve over the spinach salad.
