Recipe by Leslie in Texas

This is an excellent spinach salad with a creamy, buttermilk-type dressing. The dressing can be made up to 2 days ahead and refrigerated and the salad can be assembled ahead and then tossed with the dressing just before serving. Originally from a July 1984 issue of Bon Apetit that featured a menu and recipes from Sam Higgins, the official camp cook at the K-bar Ranch outside of Arlington, Texas.
