Dr Furhman's Strawberry Spinach Salad

I'm in love with Dr Furhman's Strawberry Spinach Salad, from Super Immunity.

This dressing is yummy. I even ate it on greek yogurt!! With some fresh strawberries coming into market and being a spinach time of spring, this is a treat. Makes a splendid breakfast or packs well (with dressing in separate bottle) for lunches/picnic.

Consuming the whole nut/seed instead of extracted oils is supposedly better for you (i.e. blend sesame seeds into your dressing instead of using sesame oil) and theoretically fewer of the calories are absorb-able.

I use cheaper frozen strawberries for the dressing and reserve the fresh expensive ones to slice on top of the salad.

Instead of tossing the spinach in the dressing, found it was best with the dressing heavily drizzled over the top- looked prettier too!
