In this week's basket, we received two kinds of lettuce, some mint, a bag of spinach leaves, onions, strawberries and kale. I know I will be making a strawberry spinach salad this week, these strawberries are delicious. I had planned on buying eggs when I picked up my share this week, but I forgot to take cash with me so I will have to wait until next week to get my fresh eggs.
Strawberry Spinach Salad
2 tablespoons of poppy seeds
1 tablespoon sesame seeds
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup of olive oil
1/4 cup of balsamic vinegar (or white vinegar)
1 tablespoon minced onion
1/4 teaspoon of worcestershire sauce
Mix all ingredients together. I usually add everything to a mason jar then add a lid and shake it to mix it all together. It is easy to pour and then store in the fridge.
10 - 12 ounces fresh spinach leaves torn into pieces
1 quart of strawberries, hulled and sliced
1/4 cup sliced almonds, toasted
Combine all the salad ingredients into a bowl. You can pour the dressing over the entire salad and serve or let each person add their own at the table. I normally make extra salad for our lunches the next day so I don't usually dress the entire salad because it tends to not be as good the next day. If we have people over and know that it will probably be eaten, I do go ahead and dress the entire salad.
