Reviews for Emily's Spinach Salad
"Flavor was not good. Curry was strong as was the taste of oil."
"best spinach salad EVER"
"Recipes are just a guide and you make them to your own taste. Excellent as it stands. Tried it as is but then cut the oil. Thank you Emily. This is a winner. Top the salad with thin slices of grilled smoked duck breast and you have a main course to die for"
"Simple and good!"
"We liked this recipe but the dressing has way too much canola oil for our tastes. I couldn't even taste the red wine vinegar and it has a strong flavor. This salad is very healthy and will try it again with less oil!"
"Sounds good but what exactly is "seasoned" pepper? Would love to make this!"
"I have used half iceberg and half spinach. This dressing is very good and I love the curry, garlic additions. Very, very nice."
"This recipe is not new. A couple of small changes is all it took."
"can for you keep the dressing for awhile in fridge ?"
"I, also, have been making this for years and passed the recipe along to many. Everyone LOVES it!!!"
"The dressing is delicious and unique."
"This salad is awesome. Thanks, Emily! I've been making it for years and neither my hubby nor I ever get tired of it. In fact, it's on the menue for tonight:-)"
