Hugs and Kisses Spinach Salad

From Dorothy McNett's recipes at

1 large bunch of fresh spinach, or other tender greens
8-9 large strawberries, or raspberries or apples...
8-9 brown crimini mushrooms
2 tablespoons cacao nibs
1/2 cup slivered almonds
2 tablespoons sesame seeds
1/4 cup raw sugar
2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
2 finely minced green onions

Wash and dry the greens, and place in a beautiful bowl. Choose strawberries with pointed ends, or use other berries or red apples. Cut the stem out in a wedge shape so that the strawberry looks like a heart. Slice the berries thin, maintaining the heart shape. Thoroughly clean the mushrooms and slice thin and toss into the spinach along with the cacao nibs. If desired, in a skillet toast the slivered almonds and the sesame seeds and set aside, or leave them raw. Whisk together the sugar, Worcestershire sauce, vinegar, and olive oil. Add the onion and whisk well. Toss into the salad, garnish with the seeds and almonds and serve.
