Summer Spinach Salad

Summer Spinach Salad
½ cup vegetable oil ( I use canola)
¼ cup chopped onion
2 tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons cider or red wine vinegar
2 tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons sugar
1-½ teaspoons ground mustard
½ teaspoon salt
1-½ teaspoons poppy seeds
8 cups torn fresh spinach
3 green onions, sliced (I don’t always add this)
2 pints fresh strawberries sliced
3 large bananas cut into ½ inch slices
½ cup slivered almonds, toasted (it works fine if they are not toasted too)

Place the first six ingredients into a blender or food processor; cover and process until the sugar is dissolved. Add the poppy seeds; process just until blended. In a salad bowl, combine the remaining ingredients. Drizzle with dressing; toss to coat. Serve immediately. 14 servings.
