Strawberry Spinach Salad

This salad is really versatile, and goes GREAT with Honey Sesame Tenderloin .

Strawberry Spinach Salad:
The actual salad part is up to you, as long as there is spinach and strawberries, you can add whatever else sounds good at the time. This time, I just kept it simple and used spinach, strawberries, and roasted cashews. (amounts to your own taste). But you could add blueberries, mandarin oranges, grapes, and green onions. You could also switch the cashews with some roasted almonds, or any combination of the above. Its the dressing that brings it all together:
1/2 c. sugar
1/2 c. oil (its really good to use a mix of sesame oil and olive oil - but be careful! the sesame oil has a very STRONG flavor and you don't want it to overpower the dressing!
1/4 c. vinegar (rice vinegar is my favorite).
1/2 t. paprika
1/4 t. worcestershire sauce
1 T. poppy seeds
1 T. sesame seeds
1 T. chopped onions
Mix in blender until combined and pour over salad just before serving.
