Warm Dressing for Spinach

 Warm Dressing for Spinach
This tangy-sweet dressing is perfect for large gatherings. Keep it warm in a crockpot or slow-cooker. I like serving it over dandelion or spinach salad, and I also like it mixed in with mashed potatoes. Just a little gives a lot of flavor. —Victoria Hahn Northampton, Pennsylvania
