"This salad is delicious! It was a hit at a potluck I took it to -- only a leaf or two of spinach left in the bowl! I changed the dressing around a bit. I used less sugar -- only 4 or 5 tablespoons instead of a half cup. I used 1/3 cup of the cider vinegar, only 3-4 tablespoons of oil, and 3-4 tablespoons water to make up for the extra oil. (I often use this trick of halving the oil and adding a bit of extra vinegar and water to make up the volume of dressing -- it reduces the fat a lot without changing the flavor much.) A salad I will definitely be making again!"

"This salad is soooo good and I don't even like spinach! I just used almond slices in the salad instead of cooking them with the butter and sugar. I added some extra cider vinager too! Will definetly make it again."

"This salad is oh-so tasty. I used one 9 oz bag of spinach, but I recommend using a bit more, because it makes a good amount of dressing."
