To prepare fresh spinach, wash leaves thoroughly using cold, running water. Pat dry on paper towels, and trim off tough stems and ribs, as necessary.
1/3 cup reduced-calorie mayonnaise
¼ cup unsweetened orange juice
1 tsp sugar
1 tsp poppy seeds
½ pound fresh spinach, washed, trimmed, and torn
2 cups sliced fresh strawberries
Combine first 4 ingredients in a small bowl; stir well, and set aside. Gently toss spinach and strawberries in a large bowl; arrange on 8 individual salad plates. Drizzle 1 tablespoon poppy seed mixture over each salad. Yield: 8 servings (about 54 calories per serving).
