Wow those really look great. Just wondering are we allowed to replace the spinach with lettuce, because I myself am not really a fan of spinach, so I would like to replace it with something more tasty to me. Also sorry, but what is Worcestershire, I have never heard about it, and what makes it special compared to other things. On top of the spinach/lettuce, what do the strawberries do and do they work with anything else? Also are we required to have the paprika/vinegar. Sorry for all the questions. Thanks!

You can replace the spinach with lettuce because I don't like spinach either. I haven't heard of Worcestershire, so hopefully someone else will come answer it for you.

Nice. I plan on replacing the spinach but not sure about lettace. I don't know if anything makes Worcestershire special I think its just a spice.
