"I thought the dressing was super tasty. I used my dinner roll to sop up the leftovers that had run across my plate. I thought it was pretty easy to make and looked fancy with the poppy seeds and sesame seeds. (Only four stars though since the rest of the family was not as into it as I was.)"

"Really good. Just my husband and myself, so I didn't dress the whole salad. I put spinach in two small salad bowls and spooned a teaspoon or so of dressing on each one. Had enough left for two more salads today and a little for tomorrow."

"I made this for a pot luck tonight, 6 times it. I added a package of broken ramen noodles to the almonds and sesame seeds frying. Make sure you dress it at the last minute because the spinach wilted quite quickly. Very nice, l would make it again. Janet. VFE"
