Almost Homemade Spinach Salad

Kathie Carr


I just got home from a funeral dinner at our church. I had to bring a salad and was very short on time. I came up with this and got so many requests for the "recipe" I just had to laugh. Its way too easy but everyone loved it and scraped a big bowl of it clean.

Thank you Marzetti Brand Sweet Italian salad dressing.
