Strawberry Spinach Salad

I should call this my "Award Winning Strawberry Spinach Salad"...I don't even remember when or where I got this recipe but it is one of my favorite salads ever! It is perfect for summer time lunches with chicken or as a side dish at a BBQ! I took it to a friend's BBQ Cook-Off Contest and everyone placed their votes for their favorite dish and this salad won! It was kind of embarrassing since it wasn't even one of the entries, only a side dish... But it is really good! ;o)

Me, Andy & my prize-winning salad


2 bunches or 1 bag of fresh spinach
2 cups sliced strawberries
1/2 cup roasted sunflower seeds





Dressing:

1/2 cup sugar
2 Tbsp toasted sesame seeds
1 Tbsp poppy seeds
1 1/2 Tbsp minced red or white onion
1/4 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1/2 cup oil
1/4 cup cider vinegar (or white vinegar with a little apple juice in it)



Combine dressing and toss with spinach, strawberries and sunflower seeds just before serving.
