Cranberry Spinach Salad

"This recipe came from another website. It makes a lot so is good for a potluck or large gathering. Make sure to use the whole amount of spinach or to cut back on the dressing if using less spinach. When I take this somewhere, I usually take the dressing in a jar and dress the salad right before serving. Note: This is not good leftover."

    I halved the oil to 1/4 cup. This is over-the-top sweet -- almost like dessert. Served with roasted turkey. Next time I'll only use 1/2 cup cranberries because it seemed like the cranberry/spinach ratio was way off.

    I've done a modified version with stellar results several time - my niece is now asking for this salad for every family get together! I don't use butter to toast my nuts, and have subbed both pine nuts and pecans (or a combination), dry-toasted in a pan or in the oven - just watch them carefully! Otherwise, we halve the dressing amount, and add crumbled feta or goat cheese. YUM!!

    Great taste - too much dressing for our taste, will 1/2 next time - and there will be a next time! (ETA-1st time I reviewed this my stars didn't post - so sorry!)

    This was a hit on Mother's Day! I added one small container of mandarin oranges and a few ounces of feta cheese to cut the sweetness...a must have now in my household :-)~

    Made this last night for a dinner party, everyone loved it!! Used dried orange cranberries, added 1 lb of bacon pieces and substituted chopped honey roasted almonds instead of blanched. Made the dressing exactly as stated, but did not have poppy seeds on hand to add. My friends were literally scraping the bottom of the salad bowl. Thanks for such a great recipe!!!!!
