Jo's Spinach Salad

cathy johnson


An old family friend used to bring this to our Thanksgiving dinner every year. It is delicious and was an exotic special treat to me. Even though it is easy to prepare I still hold the memories in such high regard that I only make it for special occasions and take lots of time prepping ingredients and picking out a special bowl or platter so it looks just right. You, on the other hand, have the luxury of just throwing it together to enjoy it's goodness!
It does not keep well so make only as much as you will need for a meal. Enjoy!
