Chop the spinach and place in a bowl with the cranberries and almonds. (For a bit of extra flavor, try sautéing the almonds in butter first.)
Mix the sugar and vinegar together to make the dressing.
When the sugar has dissolved, add the olive oil, sesame seeds, onion, and paprika. Whisk vigorously.
Pour the dressing over the salad and serve.
A cup of spinach contains four grams of fiber, while a cup of cranberries contains 6.6. Together with their naturally occurring vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, they provide a powerful burst of flavor and nutrition.
