yum,yummy,yumminess!

I am so addicted to this salad. This is my friend Colleen's salad, and my friend Lorilee recently made it for a Relief Society party and it reminded my of it's yuminess! So of course I must share! Make this and I promise it will tickle your little taste buds!

Superb Spinach Salad (Alice Drake)

1-2 bunches of spinach (I only used 3/4 a bag)
1 head of lettuce
3/4 pound mushrooms. sliced
3/4 pound grated swiss cheese (I used 1 cup of shredded parmesan cheese
1 red onion chopped (I forgot this)
1/2 bacon browned and crumbled
1/2 cup slivered almonds cooked in 3Tbsp sugar until crispy and brown (I browned mine in butter since I am staying away from sugar)

Dressing
1/3 cup vinegar
14 cup oil
1/8 cup yellow mustard
3/4 Tbsp poppyseed
3/4 Tbsp minced onion
1/3 cup sugar
1 tsp salt

mix dressing in a blender or with a whiskilee recently made for a relief society get together and reminded me of it's yuminess! So I of course must share! By the way...I have made it twice since then :)
