Seasonal Foods | Strawberries

I try to serve seasonal foods when possible. Currently fresh strawberries are an easy item to add to the shopping list.

Here's an easy and tasty salad using this spring fruit, courtesy of my friend, Sarah.

In a blender combine 1/3 c. sugar, 2T seasame seed, 1 1/2 tsp. chopped onion, 1 T poppy seed, 1/4 tsp. paprika, 1/4 tsp. Worcestershire sauce, 1/2 c. canola oil, and 1/4 c. cider vinegar. It will be thick; add a little more vinegar or oil if needed.

Toss with 1 lb. fresh spinach, 1 pt. fresh strawberries (halved) and 1/2 c. slivered almonds.

Simple. Seasonal. Delicious.
