Strawberry Spinach Salad with Honey Celery Seed Dressing

 This is a great variation on the beloved strawberry spinach salad, care of my darling MIL.  The dressing is a little earthier than the traditional poppy seed dressing and I think it's so unique and refreshing. 

{What you need}
¼ cup sugar
1 quart fresh strawberries, sliced
1 (10 oz) package baby spinach greens, washed
1 cup sliced almonds, toasted
1 recipe Honey Celery Seed Dressing

¾ cup sugar
½ cup honey
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp mustard
1 tsp finely grated onion
½ cup lemon juice
1 cup vegetable oil
½ tsp celery seed

Lightly sprinkle sugar over strawberries and toss with spinach and greens just before serving.  Top with desired amount of toasted almonds and dressing.

*For dressing: Mix all ingredients except oil and celery seed in a blender  Gradually add oil and celery seed and continue blending.  Best if served chilled over the salad.  Keeps up to three weeks.
