1/2 cup white sugar
2 tablespoons sesame seeds
1 tablespoon poppy seeds
1-1/2 teaspoons minced onion
1/4 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1/4 teaspoon paprika
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/4 cup cider vinegar
1 bag (10 ounces) fresh spinach
1 pint strawberries, sliced thin
walnuts or almonds, optional


In a blender, combine the sugar, sesame seeds, poppy seeds, onion, Worcestershire sauce, paprika, oil, and vinegar. Blend well. If the dressing seems thick, add a few drops of water.

Remove the stems from the spinach and tear the leaves into bite-size pieces. Arrange them on individual salad plates or in a salad bowl. Arrange the strawberries and nuts (if using) on top. Drizzle the dressing over the strawberries and serve.

I've found that when a recipe doesn't give nutrition/calorie info, looking up the ingredients online works well. It may take a little time but if you save the information for the most commonly used ingredients such as a cup of oil, mayo, butter, vegetables, etc. it comes in handy. Hope this helps.

Calories in the dressing for the strawberry-spinach salad

Please advise the number of calories for the salad dressing and also provide substitutions or another recipe for the lowest calorie homemade salad dressing if this one is high. I love a sweet, fruity, balsamic/vinegar-based dressing with this salad. Thanks!

I've been making a salad like this for my wife for years. Only I use balsamic vinegar glaze and pecans.
