This salad was served with lunch at a conference I went to, and I liked it so much that I requested the recipe. It is elegant but easy to make. The candied almonds really add flavour!

This is an excellent spinach salad. The only change was to use red wine vinegar in place of the raspberry. Made for *PAC Fall 2008*
