Strawberry Spinach Salad

I don't know where it originally came from but this salad is really delicious. It's especially nice because spinach and strawberries are in season at the same time. For the amount of dressing below, the original recipe calls for "2 bunches of spinach" and "1 pt. strawberries". My guess is that I tend to use more strawberries than that and that the dressing probably covers about 2 lbs. of spinach.

Sweet and Sour "Seedy" Dressing
I think it's better if it's made a little in advance and allowed to sit for a few hours before it's used to dress the salad.
2 T sesame seeds
1 T poppy seeds
1/2 t onion powder (or 1 1/2 t finely minced onion)
1/4 t paprika
1/4 t Worchestershire sauce
1/2 c salad oil
1/4 c sugar (I halve it from the original 1/2 c and it's plenty sweet)
1/4 c apple cider vinegar

Happy 4th of July!
