    Nummy! Was looking for a simple spinach and strawberry salad recipe and this fits the bill. Didn't have sesame seeds or slivered almonds on hand, but was great without.

    This is a GREAT salad!! Light and refreshing. I used fresh spinach picked from our garden and it was fabulous! I didn't have poppy seeds but don't think it made that much of a difference. LOVED the crunch of the slivered almonds and celery.
