Spinach and Strawberry Salad

I was recently at a gathering where there was strawberry spinach salad that was completely empty by the time i got to it. i wasnt i had never heard of it and thought it was weird. The mixture of sweet strawberries and warm spinach didnt sounds good. and it still doesnt...but i'm not sure why i pictured cooked spinach?!?
A week later i was in Kansas visiting friends and guess what she made??? You got it.... and it was delicious! So i'm passing it on...its so simple, and so so good! Its also good if you sprinkle nuts over it.

2 bunches spinach, rinsed and
torn into bite-size pieces
4 cups sliced strawberries
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/4 cup white wine vinegar
1/2 cup white sugar
1/4 teaspoon paprika
2 tablespoons sesame seeds
1 tablespoon poppy seeds

In a large bowl, toss together the spinach and strawberries.

In a medium bowl, whisk together the oil, vinegar, sugar, paprika, sesame seeds, and poppy seeds. Pour over the spinach and strawberries, and toss to coat.
