Ingredients

How to make it

  • SALAD: Wash spinach and strawberries.
  • Tear the spinach into smaller bits if needed and slice or quarter the strawberries. Mix them together in a bowl. Set aside.
  • DRESSINGCombine all the dressing ingredients in a container with a lid. Shake well before serving. The dressing can be made up a day or two in advance
  • ALMOND GARNISH: Combine all ingredients in a non-stick frying pan or pot. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly until melted sugar turns golden brown and coats almonds (approx. 5 - 10 minutes). Turn out onto a piece of greased foil. Cool and break into small pieces.
  • Cooks and cooks' helpers treat the almonds as snack food. It's best to double the almond recipe so that by the time the salad is ready to serve, there'll still be some almonds left!
  • ASSEMBLY:
  • Add almond pieces to salad. Add dressing just before serving.
  • SUBSTITUTIONS
  • SALAD: Can be made with a combination of spinach and romaine. Try using fresh raspberries or a smaller amount of strawberries and mandarin oranges, kiwi, or blueberries.
  • DRESSING: If you don't have raspberry vinegar, here's another good dressing:
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 Tbsp. sesame seeds
  • 1 tbsp. poppy seeds
  • 1/4 tsp. paprika
  • 1/2 cup oil
  • 1/4 cup cider vinegar
  • 1/4 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 green onion - chopped

    I had this salad at a luncheon a couple weeks ago. They used walnuts instead of the almonds. It was wonderful! You get my 5.
