Strawberries are a great sign of summer here, and spinach is always healthy and in season. This salad is a wonderful compliment to meat dishes like steak or prime rib chicken and salmon, and as a side to pastas, making it a BBQ favorite.
1 container strawberries (washed and cut into bite size pieces)
¼ lb of spinach (this is a substantial amount of spinach)
2-4 long green onions cut into pieces
1-2 tbsp sesame seeds
1/8 cup oil (I used grape-seed; it is very light and clean tasting)
1/8 cup vinegar (white or red wine vinegar works well)
1 tbsp of lemon juice
salt and pepper to taste
For more people add more food accordingly. And for the dressing you don’t need a lot here and you don’t want to cover the taste of the food, just enhance. A light coat is all that is needed. So make the dressing in small quantities and increase if it is not enough. For thicker dressing use less vinegar, for thinner use less oil. Also combine the ingredients close to the time of serving.
