This is an absolutely delicious spinach salad, and so easy to throw together. With our temperature in the 90's right now, this was a perfect meal...it really is hearty enough to be a main course. Thanks Evelyn, we're already planning on when to have this again!

Amazing! This dressing is fantastic! I used Creole mustard because I prefer it to Dijon mustard. I could just drink this dressing, it's so good!! I doubled the recipe and took this salad to a church pot luck dinner and it was a huge hit! Thanks so much for the recipe!
