Spinach Salad with Raspberry-Poppy Seed Vinaigrette

I’m a sucker for a good homemade salad dressing, and am always looking for a new recipe. This fits the bill completely. And soooo easy (they often are) and seriously scrumptious.

For the salad:

Spinach

a bunch of fruit cut up into bite sized pieces (apples, grapes, mandarins, strawberries, raspberries, melon, etc.)

sliced almonds or pecans (I like to sugar mine – equal parts margarine and sugar….melt and mix together in pan, add nuts and stir. watch carefully so they don’t burn)

Feta, Goat, or blue cheese….or asiago, swiss emmental, etc.

Raspberry-Poppy Seed Vinaigrette:

1/2 cup red wine vinegar

1/2 cup sugar

1/3 cup canola/vegatable oil

2 Tbsp raspberry jam

2 Tbsp poppy seeds

1 tsp salt (optional)

3/4 tsp. dried mustard

Drizzle over salad, toss, and ENJOY!
