"I serve this spinach salad every year for our Thanksgiving dinner. The flavor of the apples and cinnamon make it great for the season. It's very quick and easy to prepare, too!"

I tried this recipe for the first time last week (on Thanksgiving). It was not reviewed or rated yet, so I saw it as a pretty big risk for me! But I came back to review it, and there are already 3 others who gave it five stars...and I completely agree! My husband has asked for it every day since, and I am making a batch for him to take to work this week for lunch! I added feta cheese to mine, and he has tried pecans. I also left out the onion, and make it with lemon juice from a bottle, and it was still amazing!
This was just okay for us. Made as written, and the dressing was a little too tart, and a little too sweet.
I made this salad for our early Thanksgiving this year. Very light, simple and full of flavor. I added toasted almonds and it was a huge success amongst adults and children
I served this at Thanksgiving and everyone loved it and asked for more. Bravo! Simple and elegant and the perfect compliment to turkey, stuffing, potatoes and gravy.
Enjoyed this, it was a nice change with the sweet and spicy. I didn't have cranberries so I added extra apple. Definitely want to try the cranberries next time! Thanks.
Made this for Thanksgiving and everyone loved it! Couldn't wrap my arms around the idea of the chili powder, so omitted it, and added toasted slivered almonds as suggested by others. Delicious and easy! Doubled the recipe to serve 12 and we ate it all!
I've been on a green juice adventure, and decided to use your recipe to make a glass of veggie juice. I did have to tweek it just a bit. Raw cranberries, don't peal the apple, green onions, 1/2 lemon, and the spinach (or whatever greens you have). If too tart, add another apple or some grapes. Some day I'll make the salad, but for now, I'm drinking it!
This is the best spinach salad I've ever eaten. Thank you, thank you for this recipe. I have 2 teenage vegetarians in the house who love fresh spinach. I swapped dried cherries for the craisins because I had them and threw in some toasted almonds for crunch.
