My Favorite Spinach Salad

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Marg CaymanDesigns

This salad taught me to love spinach! The dressing is WONDERFUL. I also love it on a lettuce salad topped with dried cranberries, pecans and crumbled bleu cheese.

This was a wonderful way to enjoy spinach salad! My husband gave it a compliment and he's not a spinach lover. I made some quick croutons (using nine grain bread) in the toaster oven. I am not a big cheese lover in salads, so I was surprised how much I liked it in this one! I can see why this is your favorite way to eat spinach salad. It's now one of ours! Roxygirl

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix first 4 ingredients together in a large bowl.
  2. To prepare dressing, warm wine vinegar slightly.
  3. Add sugar and stir to dissolve.
  4. (If you prefer a tangier dressing, reduce the sugar to 2/3 cup.) If you don't warm the vinegar, you will have trouble getting the sugar to dissolve.
  5. Allow to cool.
  6. Add onion, paprika and salt.
  7. Stir well.
  8. Add olive oil and blend.
  9. I prefer to put it in a bottle and shake it.
  10. Pour over salad and enjoy!
