Spinach Salad with Rhubarb Dressing Recipe

Publisher Photo
Spinach salad is excellent with this tangy topping. It really perks it up. A friend shared a similar salad dressing recipe with me, which I modified a bit. The rhubarb adds rosy color and mouthwatering flavor.—Twila Mitchell, Lindsborg, Kansas
