I brought this to a Labor Day Weekend BBQ and everybody (about 12 people) raved about the salad. Not one leaf of spinach was left in the bowl!
I did make some adjustments to the recipe: Added about a tablespoon of worchestershire sauce for an added kick and toasted the sesame seeds before adding them to the dressing for a nuttier flavor. Didn't have poppy seeds on hand, so I left them out. Finally, I used fresh sliced strawberries instead of the cranberries (mostly because they were in season and very inexpensive). The dressing was delicious, but I was careful to add it to taste. Even though we served this salad to 12 people, we had quite a bit of leftover dressing which I plan on using again tonight.
I will definitely make this recipe again and will try it with the dried cranberries when strawberries aren't in season. Very tasty and a great change from a standard green or spinach salad. Yum!
