baby spinach, rinsed and dried
poppyseed salad dressing
This salad was awesome and got rave reviews from the ultra picky husband! The only things I changed were adding fresh parmesean cheese and I drizzled honey over the pecans before baking. Also, the 1/4 cup of poppy sead dressing seemed to be too much and made the spinach leafs a little soggy, so I had to add a cup more spinach. So you might want to add dressing to taste instead of pouring the whole 1/4 cup in like I did.
Nice combination of flavors and colors, but...is the dressing part of the recipe missing? I bought a bottle of poppyseed dressing and it was ok but not great. I bet a great dressing recipe would make this sing.
We are in LOVE with this recipe. It is so much greater than the sum of its parts. Who would think so few ingredients could make such an impact. The first night we ate so much of it we were too full for the rest of our dinner, so the next time I made it I grilled some chicken to serve on top and that was our dinner - very yummy! I used Paula's Poppyseed Dressing recipe from this website and it was fantastic. We avoid sugar so I substituted Splenda in the dressing recipe and we all loved it! One time I was out of pecans so I used walnuts and it was just great - the important part is the toasting. Thanks so much for this new staple in our house. Edited to add that I have now tried it with grilled steak on it as well. We will use this every way we can think of.
Terrific recipe. Great tasting and super quick. I also make a variation of this using strawberries and pink grapefruit sections, everything else is the same. The color of the peaches against the spinach was beautiful.
Excellent combo of flavors and colors. I used Brianna's poppyseed dressing- it was $3 for the bottle- very good. I think adding strawberries would be a nice touch too.
I made this recipe for a family July 4th get-together. Super easy and very good. I bought a large bag of pre-washed baby spinach and used a good bottled dressing and this salad was ready in minutes. A nice and different combination of flavors. Make sure you roast your pecans. Will make this again especially when fresh peaches are in their prime
Yummy, yummy, yummy! This is fabulous! It is our new favorite salad. Perfect with salmon and some crusty bread. Thanks for the recipe.
YUM YUM YUM - this salad dressing is the BEST! I am not a big fan of fruity salads - but this one really is great! I love the spinach, the nuts, eveerything!
