Because this recipe had so many reviews...I just had to try it! I read as many of the 5-star reviews and suggestions as I could, and then quite a few of the ones where people said they didn't like it. It seemed to me that the main reason people didn't like it was because the dressing was too overpowering. I took a lot of the suggestions of other reviewers and altered the recipe only slightly, and it was -- as so many others have already said -- fantastic! I used a 1/4 c Spenda, dry roasted the almonds, used mixed greens in addition to spinach, did not use poppy seeds, used Craisins and a small can of Mandarin oranges, only used 1/4 c olive oil and sprinkled reduced-fat feta on top afterward. (I also added cucumbers cut into quarters because my boyfriend loves them.) I did not add the dressing directly to the salad but drizzled it on prior to eating just in case it was too much. It was extremely tasty and my boyfriend raved about it and said this should be something we make all of the time. This one is a keeper!
