Strawberry Spinach Salad


Last week it was surprisingly hot in the Bay Area. Even though this is early fall, temperatures soared to the 100s for a few days, as though we were still in summer. As I didn't want the house to get warm, I was making mostly salads those days. This is one such salad that I experimented with during the week, which turned out to be quite a hit.
Ingredients:
 2 tablespoons sesame seeds
 1/8 cup white sugar
 1/8 to 1/4 cup olive oil
 1/8 cup distilled white vinegar
 1/4 teaspoon paprika (optional)
 1/8 cup Worcestershire sauce
 1 tablespoon minced onion
 10 ounces fresh spinach - rinsed, dried and torn into bite-size pieces
 1 quart strawberries - cleaned, hulled and sliced
 Sliced onion -1
 Cherry tomatoes
Method:
In a medium bowl, whisk together the sesame seeds, sugar, olive oil, vinegar, paprika, Worcestershire sauce and onion. Cover, and chill for one hour.
In a large bowl, combine the spinach,onion, strawberries and tomatoes. Pour dressing over salad, and toss. Refrigerate 10 to 15 minutes before serving.

  7. Can I ask if I can replace the spinach with Holy basil(tulsi) which is a good one too? Will it ruin the entire recipe?

    1. I think Holy basil would be a good substitute for spinach in this salad.

  8. Yes, I agree with your point that the green tea is the best and healthier drink for all people. I do not seem to do well by drinking normal tea’s as they give me lot of headaches. Now, I do well with Green tea. Buy green tea in India and avail the benefits for healthy life.
