"I will make this and know we'll enjoy it; however, instead of mixing the dressing "in a small bowl", I will mix it in the pan where I fried the sausage and onions (after the pan has cooled, not hot). As I stir/mix that, it will loosen any residual scrapings that will only add to the wonderful taste!"

"When I made this, I ending up putting the spinach in the skillet also - when the sausage and onions were just about fully cooked. I continued sautéing until the spinach was cooked down.. Delicious!"
