Spinach Salad

Here is my recipe for the Salad I made for Paige's Bridal shower that everybody is wanting. Enjoy!

Poppy Seed Dressing

1/3 C. Sugar
1/3 C. Cider Vinegar
1 1/2 tsp. Poppy Seeds
1 tsp. Dry Mustard
1 tsp. Salt
1 C. Oil

Put all the ingredients into a mixing bowl and mix with a wire whisk until thick and creamy. Don't put all of the dressing on the salad it might be too much. Refrigerate any remaining amount and use it later.

Candied Walnuts
Get a small frying pan, heat to medium heat. Put a couple Tbs of butter, a Tbs or more of brown sugar and about a Tbs of Karo syrup (I just poured some into the pan) Mix all these together and when it's melted then dump in a bag of walnuts. Coating them in this mixture. Then take off the heat and add to your salad. (Sorry I don't have exact amounts of ingredients because I just put into the pan without measuring.)


Put all ingredients into a large bowl

Spinach ( a bag of Spinach leaves works great)
Half a head of Iceberg lettuce, washed and cut into strips or tear into pieces
3 Gala Apples, cut and sliced into bit sizes
Bacon, cooked and crumbled
1 (6 oz.) pkg. Feta cheese
Sprinkle about 1/2 cup of Parmesan cheese
Candied Walnuts
Add half a package of Crasins or more if you want

Serve right away or keep the apples and nuts out until right before serving. Put the dressing on right before serving or let guests put on their own dressing.
