    Alskann's Note:

    This is so simple to make and oh so satisfying. I took this to a dinner party and a friend who hates spinach even asked for the recipe. It is always a hit and disappears in a hurry.

      Wonderful salad. I did add some red onion because we love it, but the mix of flavors and textures and the dressing were so good. Thanks, we'll make this a lot.

      We absolutely loved this. I had a nice spring mix of salad, which had spinach in it so felt justified to make this recipe. Probably added more craisins and bacon than called for because I was just estimating for the two of us. Loved the almonds in this and the dressing was very good. I only used 2 tablespoons of splenda to get it to our preference. I ate my whole bowl which is very rare for me. Was the hit of my dinner tonight. Thanks Alskann.
