It’s the beginning of the new year and everyone is on a healthy food and exercise kick.  I find new years resolutions are hard to keep.  At least for me they are.  I normally don’t find salads to be very satisfying.  At least not on their own.  Alongside some soup and a big hunk of bread, then it’s not so bad.  I made this salad with some grilled chicken breast and it was really light and tasty lunch.

 The dressing is both sweet and tangy.  It tastes so good with the strawberries and is super easy to make.  Here it is.

Apple-Poppyseed Dressing:

1/4 cup cider vinegar

1/2 cup olive oil

1/2 tsp Worcestershire sauce

1/2 cup sugar

2 tbs sesame seeds

1 tbs poppy seeds

1 1/2 tsp minced onion

Add sugar, vinegar, Worcestershire sauce and minced onion to a blender.  With the blender running on low, slowly drizzle in the olive oil until mixture is mixed and becomes a little thick.  Stir in the sesame and poppy seeds, then drizzle over baby spinach and sliced strawberries.
