Spinach Strawberry Salad

I also made this when my husband's family visited. It's a unique summer salad! The salad does not keep as well if you mix the dressing right in, however.

12 oz. fresh spinach
1 qt. fresh strawberries, sliced
2 TBSP. sesame seeds
1 TBSP. poppy seeds

1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup sugar
1.5 tsp. grated onion
1/4 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
1/4 tsp. paprika
1/4 cup cider vinegar

Layer spinach, strawberries, sesame seeds, and poppy seeds in a large salad bowl. Combine the dressing ingredients in a blender (I used my mixer). Blend for 2 minutes. Just before serving, pour the dressing over the spinach and toss lightly to coat.
