Nate is becoming a great little sous chef. He measures, he mixes, he emulsifies! It's amazing how much more he is willing to try new foods now that he has a hand in the preparation.
Strawberry season is upon us so we made this super simple spinach and strawberry salad. Start off by putting cleaned spinach leaves in a salad bowl and the sliced berries on top.
Spinach and Strawberry Salad
2 bunches spinach, torn in pieces
2 pints strawberries, cleaned & hulled
1/3 c. sugar
2 T. sesame seeds
1 1/2 t. minced onions
1/4 t. Worcestershire sauce
1/4 t. paprika
1/2 c. oil
1/4 c. cider vinegar
1 T. poppy seeds
Place spinach in a large salad bowl with the strawberries on top. Do not mix and set aside.
Place all the dressing ingredients into a food processor and blend until thickened. Toss salad just before serving. Note, if you toss the salad too early the dressing will wilt the spinach leaves.
