Make-Ahead Spinach and Boston Lettuce Salad

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Heather in Barrie

Most of the work for this salad can be done ahead. I have made it a few times and my family and guests really enjoyed it. I got the recipe from the Canadian Living Barbecue plus Cookbook Summer 2005.

Excellent salad! It was easy to put together and the dressing is very fresh tasting. I left of the nuts, used Gouda and used chives in the dressing. I used my stick blender for the dressing like another reviewer. Thanks for posting! I'll be making this salad again. Made for PAC Fall 2009.
