Toasted sesame seeds are a nice contrast to the hearty ingredients and thick creamy dressing in this spinach salad. "I make this dish at least once a month," says Sue Collins of Shawnee, Kansas.


  • 2 packages (10 ounces each) fresh spinach, torn
  • 1 pint cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 2 ripe avocados, peeled and sliced
  • 1 package (5 ounces) frozen cooked salad shrimp, thawed
  • 3/4 pound fresh mushrooms, sliced
  • 3 hard-boiled large eggs, chopped
  • 1/2 cup sesame seeds, toasted
  • 1/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
  • 2 cups sour cream
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped onion
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons white vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder


  1. In a large bowl, toss the spinach, tomatoes, avocados, shrimp, mushrooms, eggs and sesame seeds. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. In a small bowl, combine the dressing ingredients. Pour over salad and toss to coat.
