Old Fashioned Southern Spinach Salad

Allison Hazell


A spinach salad is only as good as its dressing. This one is great! I have experimented with also tossing in some berries and/or nuts and some feta or blue chees. All work well. But the basic recipe is outstanding. Imagine putting a nice piece of glazed salmon on top of a plateful. Thank you to Patty who gave me this recipe about 3 decades ago. Southern women are amazing cooks.
