Posts Tagged ‘dijon mustard dressing’

We eat a lot of spinach salad (not the typical kind with bacon & egg) but whatever floats our boat kind of spinach salad. Husband actually enjoys salads almost as much as I do…just as long as he has his beloved Thousand Island Dressing (TID) on hand!

Here is another salad favourite I’ve been making for quite some time. If you have a TID or other dressing lover in your family as well, before you drizzle the homemade dressing on this salad, scoop some salad out and put aside undressed.

Spinach Salad with Strawberries

4-6 cups – fresh spinach (baby spinach is what we prefer)
1 cup – fresh strawberries, sliced
1 – small red onion, sliced into thin rings

Dressing

2 tbsp – balsamic vinegar
2 tbsp – rice vinegar
1 tbsp – honey
2 tsp – Dijon mustard
1 tbsp – sesame seeds, toasted
salt & pepper to taste, optional

Whisk together dressing ingredients (or pour into old jar and shake). Combine spinach, strawberries and red onion rings in a salad bowl.

Just before serving drizzle dressing over salad and toss with your hands or tongs. Serve immediately.

Tip: Kraft Poppy Seed Dressing also goes well with this salad, as do pumpkin seeds (green shelled) and feta cheese.
