Makes 6 to 8 servings

1 (10-ounce) package fresh spinach
1 pint fresh strawberries, cleaned and sliced lengthwise 1/4-inch thick
1/2 of a small onion, finely chopped
3 tablespoons sugar
3 tablespoons water
2 tablespoons white vinegar
1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
1/4 cup canola or vegetable oil

1. Rinse the spinach leaves and remove the stems. Dry well then tear into bite-sized pieces; place the spinach in a large bowl and add the strawberries.

2. In a small bowl, combine the onion, sugar, water, vinegar, mustard, and oil. Whisk until well combined. Drizzle the dressing over the salad and toss to coat. Serve immediately.

NOTE: If you want to make this salad ahead of time, prepare the spinach, strawberries, and dressing and keep chilled in separate containers until ready to toss and serve. If you prefer, you can substitute a can of drained mandarin oranges for the strawberries.
