Recipe by SARAH W
"This sweet and crunchy salad is very kid friendly! I first tried this when I visited my family in Newfoundland, and managed to get a copy of the recipe. Make lots, there won't be any left over. Any kind of lettuce can be used as well as spinach. Raisins can also be added."

not sure why only the one star, I served this on New Year's Eve and everyone loved it. I used the salad topping slivered almonds from package and also packaged bacon bits, it was very good. Would make again.
Yum! I loved the bold use of black pepper and celery seed in this dressing. It was a bit too sweet for me, so I would hold back a little on the sugar, but it worked well with the salad as written, too. The recipe makes a ton of dressing - I halved it and still ended up with quite a bit, so you may want to cut it to 1/3 until you are sure you like it enough to use on more salads. Excellent fruit/nut/veggie/bacon combo! Thanks for the recipe!
Only reason I did not give this a 5 is because I listened to the other reviews on the sweetness and cut the sugar in half and was pleased with the result. Can't imagine using all the sugar called for. This dressing is excellent and goes perfectly on this salad. Was enjoyed by all. Thanks for sharing Sarah!
I loved this! It diffently is sweet, so next time I'll cut back on the sugar. I just used a Spring Salad Mix, and put the mushrooms and oranges in there, I didn't have almonds. so I just srinkled some chopped pecans I had. I'm going to be making this again.
Recipe received 5 stars from 19-year old son and hubby (and me). This makes for a pleasant break from the usual lettuce, tomato, and cucumber green salad. I did increase the mustard and used about 1/3 the amount of sugar called for and it was still plenty sweet. Also slivered some red onion into the salad instead of using them in the dressing. We loved the taste combination of ingredients and the color was terrific. Worked well with both grilled chicken and steak. Rounded out both meals with brown and serve sourdough bread. I think it would work to also add some feta cheese if you wanted a heartier salad. Thanks, Sarah, for sharing Glenda's recipe. It is terrific!
