  • 1 1/2 lbs fresh spinach, washed and torn into pieces
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon dry mustard
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons poppy seeds
  • 1/2 small red onion, grated
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup cider vinegar
  • 1 can hearts of palm, drained and chopped
  • 2 cups strawberries, stemmed and sliced
  • 1 cup walnuts, chopped


For the dressing, combine the vinegar, sugar, lemon juice and salt in a small non-reactive saucepan and heat over medium heat until the sugar dissolves, stirring frequently. Remove pan from heat and let cool to room temperature. When cooled, whisk in the oil, onion, poppy seeds, dry mustard and paprika until thoroughly combined. Set dressing aside. In a salad bowl, combine the spinach, hearts of palm, strawberries and walnuts. When ready to serve, add some of the dressing, and toss gently. Serve the remaining dressing alongside the salad so diners may add more, if desired.

Sounds delicious

Sounds delicious, except here in the country we call hearts of palm swamp cabbage and you'd be amazed how many different things you can do with it.
