Wow, Steph, this is a Delicious salad, easy to make. I used my pepper jelly that I made. Love the dressing with the combonation of Spinach, raisins, toasted sesame and roasted pecans. I didn't use the sun-dried tomatoes, matter of preference. Topped it with the Blue cheese and olive. DH loved it. Thank you Steph, for another great recipe.

I love this recipe. And the vinaigrette is amazing - I used it with some melted garlic butter and marinaded my skinless turkey breasts in it the other night. People could not stop raving about how great it tasted. Thank you for this recipe

That's one week of brisk morning walks, five days of salads. I feel good. I feel strong. Punch me. Seriously! Punch me in the stomach. Feel that? You feel that?
