Strawberry Spinach Salad

I love strawberry spinach salad in the springtime. The traditional recipe uses poppy seeds, which are expensive. I've substituted sunflower seeds here, which offer a better bang for your buck and a unique flavor.

Strawberry Spinach Salad
Serves 4

1 package baby spinach
4 ounces strawberries, thinly sliced
2 tablespoons sunflower seeds
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 teaspoon raspberry vinegar
1 teaspoon sugar

1. Combine spinach, strawberries, and sunflower seeds.
2. Whisk olive oil, raspberry vinegar, and sugar together. Toss with salad.

I served this salad with ham sandwiches and potato au gratin for a classic spring meal.
