This was a very good salad. The only thing I did different was add very very thin sliced red onion and skipped the dried stuff in the dressing. Got lots of "delicious" from my guests.

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

This salad dressing is wonderful, easy to make and healthy when made with canola oil.
