    EeeGee's Note:

    I really enjoy spinach based salad with creamy dressings and this simple recipe is really great. Depending on the type of mayo you use this recipe can also be suitable for low carb diets. Serves four as a side salad, or 1-2 people as lunch. From a newspaper clipping.

      This was SO delicious. I anticipated that it would be nice, but I did not expect it to be THIS good! My mayonnaise was not really of the pouring kind, so I added some olive oil, which made it more spreadable. This was absolutely fantastic, and I will definitely be making it again!

      Served this at dinner on New Year's day. It was a real crowd pleaser. The dressing should be made in advance of actually assembling the salad. It needs a couple of hours for the flavor to develop. I added a little chopped parsley, fresh ground black pepper, and a pinch of thyme. Also doubled the recipe for five people.
