Anything is good, in moderation. I cook because I love to and because I can share with those around me. I crochet for the same reason.

Do what you want to do, enjoy what you do and use it to touch those around you.

Berry Spinach Salad

This salad was, at least in its original form, given to me by my mother in law.  A few tweaks and here it is.  To toast seeds, heat a non stick skillet and pour in the seeds.  Shake until toasted.  Berries can be any of your choice - and any mix of your choice (strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, etc.)

  1 Tbl toasted sesame seeds                                                     1/4 Cup distilled white vinegar
  2 Tbl toasted poppy seeds                                                       1/4 Tsp paprika
  1/2 Cup white sugar                                                                12 Ounce Fresh Spinach
  1/4 Cup olive oil                                                                      1 Qt berries
  1/4 Cup Canola Oil                                                                 

In a medium bowl, whisk together the sesame seeds, poppy seeds, sugar, oils, vinegar and paprika. Cover, and chill for one hour.  In a large bowl, combine the spinach and berries.  Pour dressing over salad, and toss. Refrigerate 10 to 15 minutes before  serving.
