by by Original Author: JoAnn Vann, Clark County | Adapted for Blog: Torrie Smith, Van Buren County

Arkansas Strawberries ripen in May and are an excellent fruit to consume fresh. Looking for a new way to serve strawberries?  Try this tangy, easy to make salad.

 Strawberry Spinach Salad
  • ½ cup sugar
  • Dash paprika
  • ½ teaspoon prepared mustard
  • ½ teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • ¼ cup vegetable oil
  • 1 ½ teaspoon onion, minced
  • ¼ cup vinegar
  • 1 (9 oz) bag fresh spinach
  • 1 pint fresh strawberries, sliced
  • ¼ cup nuts, chopped (optional)

Dressing Directions:

Combine all ingredients except spinach, strawberries, and nuts. Blend with a fork or wire whisk until blended and sugar dissolves.

Salad Directions:

Rinse spinach and pat dry. Cut of stems and place in bowl. Add sliced strawberries. Drizzle dressing lightly to taste over salad. Toss to coat. Sprinkle nuts over top.

TIP: use leftover dressing with other salads or to marinate vegetables. You may add other fruits like drained pineapple chunks, grapes, or blueberries.
