At the time I am posting this recipe, sweet strawberries are in abundance here in North Carolina. This is another delicious way to serve them.

Directions

  1. FOR DRESSING: In a small saucepan, combine sugar, vinegar, dry mustard, and salt. Cook over medium-low heat just until sugar is dissolved, stirring occasionally. Transfer to a blender. With blender running, gradually add oil in a thin steady stream. Transfer mixture to a small bowl; stir in poppy seeds. Cover and chill at least 2 hours before serving.
  2. Preheat oven to 350. In a shallow baking pan, combine pecans and cinnamon. Bake for 5 minutes. Cool in pan on a wire rack.
  3. In a large salad bowl, combine spinach, strawberries, red onion, and cooled pecans. Whisk dressing. Pour the desired amount of dressing over spinach mixture; toss gently to coat.
  4. Cover and chill the remaining dressing for up to 2 weeks. Use as a dressing for pasta salad or fruit.
