This weekend I made a great spinach salad.  What made this salad taste so good was likely the dill sprinkled on the salad and the dressing.  I took the salad to a pot luck supper and it was a hit.  You can add more almonds or strawberries to the salad than what is provided in the ingredient list.


10 ounce bag of spinach, chopped
6 to 7 strawberries, thinly sliced
5 fresh mushrooms, thinly sliced
3 green onions, chopped
a handful of almonds, chopped
1/2 tsp dried dill
1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup wine vinegar
1/4 cup filled half way with water
1 heaping tbsp splenda or sugar
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp onion flakes
1/4 tsp dry mustard
1/2 tbsp poppy seeds
pepper to taste


In a large bowl, combine spinach, strawberries, green onions, mushrooms, almonds and dill.

In a glass or plastic jar that has a lid, combine the oil, vinegar, water, splenda, garlic powder, onion flakes, mustard, poppy seeds and pepper to taste,  Shake well.  Pour dressing over salad and serve.  Makes about 6 servings.
