Spinach Salad

I hope you all enjoyed your Mother's Day as much as I did!! What a relaxing day it least as much as possible :) My family got together for a BBQ and we were incharge of the salad, so my hubby made it! That just tells you how easy it is to throw together (you did a great job hubby:) )!!

Spinach Salad

1 10oz bag of Spinach
1 8oz bag of roman lettuce
Swiss cheese (grated)
2 cans mandarin oranges (drained well)
1 bag romaine noodles (crumbled)
Candied pecans (2 handfuls)

Mix above ingredients together. To make candied pecans - you can have whole or half pecans, 4 Tbsp sugar, cook over medium heat for about 5 mins stirring constantly. Cook just until sugar sticks to the pecans in liquid form. Poor onto plate.

2/3 cup red wine vinegar
2 tsp prepared mustard
1 tsp chopped fine onions
2 tsp poppy seed
1 1/4 cup sugar
2 tsp salt
1 cup light olive oil

Combine all but oil in a bowl, mix well. Slowly add oil in while mixing.

Pour dressing onto salad just before serving or place on the side to add to own plate!
