    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    If you are a spinach salad-lover then this is one you should not pass up! Serve this to your guests or family then sit back and wait for all the rave reviews you will get! Add in some cooked shrimp or chicken breast if desired! the dressing can be made up to 2 days in advance, it will need a minimum of 2 hours chilling time to blend flavours, the dressing will make about 3/4 cup but it can easily be doubled. The salad amounts are only a guideline, all amounts can be adjusted to taste. Also see my Kittencal's Famous Greek Salad and Kittencal's Famous Caesar Salad.
