Strawberry Spinach Salad With Homemade Dressing

    I wanted to share with you a healthy recipe that is not only quick and easy to make, but it tastes great as well.  You can make it as a side dish or if you eat it for lunch you can drink a healthy 16 oz green smoothie along with it and be getting a good serving of fruits and vegetables.  Your taste buds and your body will love this dish!

Ingredients:

Salad
3 Large Strawberries sliced
Bowl of Large Leaf Spinach or Baby Spinach
Blanched or Slivered Almonds
Red Onion chopped finely (amount to personal taste)

Dressing
1/2 cup Olive Oil
1/4 cup White Vinegar
1/4 teaspoon Worcestershire Sauce
2 Tablespoons Sesame Seeds
1 Tablespoon of Poppy Seeds
Tip: If you like a sweeter dressing, you can add a teaspoon of honey or dark agave nectar

Mix the dressing well with a whisk or fork.  Pour over your salad and mix well.  It is a tasty salad and also very good for your body.  If you eat this 2 hours before working out the spinach will provide nitrates to your body which will make your exercise seem easier. I have actually tried this myself and maybe it was the power of suggestion but my workout did feel easier.  You can read post about it here: Tip of the Week From Self Magazine.
