Yep. That's right. I'm sharing a recipe. Because every time I eat this meal I feel like Bob in "What About Bob" when he's making love to his corn on the cob. It's that good.

And the best part- it's healthy.

Strawberry Spinach Salad
(I'm sure there are other varieties of this recipe, but this is the one I used. So there.)

1/2 C vegetable oil
1/4 C white or red wine vinegar
1/2 C sugar
1 tbsp. poppy seeds
(mix all of it together)

1-2 bunches of spinach
2-4 C sliced strawberries (I just add however many I want. I never measure. Sorry.)
1/2 C sliced almonds

Brown almonds with about 3 tbsp sugar in a frying pan on med-lo heat until melted and brown. Spread them out on a plate to cool. yum.

Combine spinach, strawberries and almonds in a salad bowl. Top with dressing.

It is like heaven in my mouth.
