Spinach Strawberry Salad with Chia Seed Dressing

Everybody loves a spinach strawberry salad especially during summer and if you have it at Eat and Park Restaurant around here in Pittsburgh you love it even more because of the dressing.  They do use a sweet sesame seed one.  Since I did not sesame seeds that had not expired in the pantry, I decided to add instead chia seeds.  The seeds was pretty neutral in its taste but when it comes to nutrtional value it packs a punch. Try this for a change and your body would love it.
