Strawberry Spinach Salad

My mom first encountered this recipe at a book club meeting (sans the black beans). It was such a hit that the host wrote out recipe cards for everyone in attendance. Since then, it's become a favorite among my family, and I make it for any summer potluck I attend.

For the salad:

  • 1 carton baby spinach
  • 1 pint strawberries, sliced
  • 1 can black beans, rinsed
  • 1/2 Cup slivered almonds, toasted

For the dressing:

  • 1/2 Cup sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon poppy seeds
  • 2 Tablespoons sesame seeds
  • 3/4 Teaspoons dried minced onions
  • 1/4 Teaspoon paprika
  • 1/4 Cup cider vinegar
  • 1/4 Cup wine vinegar
  • 1/2 Cup canola oil

Directions

For the salad:

In a large bowl, toss together all ingredients.

For the dressing:

In a jar, add all ingredients and shake to combine. You will have enough dressing for two salads.
