Strawberry/Spinach Salad

1# baby spinach leaves (you can get the pre-washed ones at Sam's Club)
1 quart sliced strawberries
3/4 c. Almond Accents (found in produce dept.) or you can carmelize sliced almonds

1/4 c. sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
1/3 c. strawberry jam
1/4 c. vinegar
2 tsp. poppy seeds (opt.)
1/2 c. oil

Wash and put spinach in a large bowl. Slice strawberries and toss in with the greens. Toss in the almonds.

Dressing: In blender mix sugar, salt, vinegar, jam and poppy seeds; add oil and mix again. Toss with salad just before serving.

I think it's best with homemade freezer strawberry jam. If you have leftover dressing, it will keep in refrigerator for several weeks.
