This salad recipe comes from my friend, Mary Ellen. I have almost all of the ingredients here at my house right now; it sounds like the perfect time to try it.
Prepare enough spinach for your meal, then add cucumbers and green onions.
2 t. olive oil
1/4 c. cider vinegar
2 T. maple syrup
Heat oil, then add remaining ingredients bring to boil; pour over spinach.
1/4 c. shredded smoked cheese (gouda or cheddar)
2 T chopped pecans that have been lightly roasted
Mary Ellen also added a few fresh strawberries to her salad. She said it was a hit with her and a friend.
