This is a great salad! A nice alternative to a traditional chef salad. I dry toasted the sesame seeds. I also added some chopped red bell pepper. The dressing is very good.

I was hoping to find a spinach salad that was a little bit different and this was it! We absolutely loved this. The flavor of the pineapple was such that I think this would also go well with Hawaiian or Asian foods and would be the perfect side for that stir-fry with few or no veggies. Thanks for sharing. ~Lorie

An excellent salad! I used a bit more spinach since my garden is overflowing with it. The kids liked this too. Thanks!

Excellent salad! I made this to go with chicken tamales and tortilla soup for our Mexican Christmas Eve dinner. The only thing I did differently was to omit the onions because of guests tastes, and I only used 1/2 of the dressing. The only thing I wasn't happy with was that after I heated the oil and tried to brown the seasame seeds, they popped and spattered everywhere. Next time I would dry toast them and then add the oil.

I used baby spring greens instead of just baby spinach and substituted bacon-flavor soy bits for the bacon. I enjoyed the salad very much, and especially the dressing made with the reserved pineapple juice, which would be good on other fruit salads, too.

This was great even though I miss read the recipe, but fixed it before it was too late. I didn't brown the sesame seeds, but when I realized it, I just scooped the sesame seeds out of the dressing with some of the juices and browned them, added them back and it was great. The only thing different I did was to tear the pineapple chunks into smaller pieces and added about a teaspoon of minced garlic to the dressing. We will be making this often.
