Strawberry Spinach Salad

I made this last night and loved it! Chris didn't care for it very much though.

1/4 cup slivered almonds
2 Tbs. sugar
1 package (10 oz) fresh spinach, torn
1 cup fresh strawberries, sliced

Dressing:
2 Tbs. canola oil ( I used olive oil instead)
1 Tbs. raspberry vinegar or red wine vinegar
1 green onion, finely chopped
1 1/2 tsp. sugar
1 1/2 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
1 tsp. poppy seeds
1/4 tsp. salt

In a skillet, cook and stir almonds and sugar over low heat until sugar is dissolved and almonds are coated. Spread on foil to cool; break apart.
In a bowl, combine spinach, strawberries and almonds. In a jar with a tight-fiting lid, combine the dressing ingredients; shake well. Drizzle over salad; toss gently to coat. Serve immediately.
