I made this recipe for our family St. Patrick's Day celebration. It was a big hit. I think I used a bit too much spinach so it turned out a little light on the dressing but over all very good & well liked by all. I did have to substitute white wine vinegar as I thought I had sherri vinegar but did not. It still turned out wonderfully. The shallots really made the dish. Lovely flavor. Thanks FloridaNative.
