    William (Uncle Bill) Anatooskin's Note:

    An absolutely delightful and tasty salad, especially when fresh baby spinach and strawberries are available. This recipe was given to me by a famous Chef in Palm Springs, CA. This is a must to make.

      Incredible recipe! The only thing I did was leave out the poppy seeds.. but that's because this was part of a romantic dinner and I didn't want to look at poppyseeds stuck in his teeth! Highly recommended for anyone!

      This was a huge hit! Everyone loved it and it was super easy. I left out the poppy seeds and offered feta cheese on the side. I will definitely be making this again!

      This is really a marvelous salad. It's one of my daughter's favorites! I very thinly sliced red onions which I think gave it a sweet and sour flavor. Love the nuts method of toasting it in the pan with sugar. It's a Keeper! Thank you Uncle Bill
