This might have been in TOH, but my neighbor made this recently for pitch-in party. It was so pleasing to the eye and colorful, that we all enjoyed it even before eating. The dressing was just perfect, used sparingly, and everyone copied her recipe.

Simple, lovely, and delicious. My DH says this is the best spinach salad I've ever made for him and that's quite a compliment coming from him! Thanks, NurseJaney. Made for Aussie Kiwi Recipe Swap #43.

This was really good. I subbed in Splenda for the sugar but made as directed otherwise. I'm hoping it keeps well so I can have leftovers tomorrow! Thanks for posting.

Loved this salad...It was a hit with everyone and being an artichoke lover I am happy to have found a great salad that I will make often. Made for Recipe swap #20 and served it with Red Wine Steak and Mushrooms
