Raspberry Spinach Salad

Note:     This is a pretty salad to serve at Valentine's Day, but a delicious salad to eat any day!    Now if I can just make it pretty enough to make hubs not realize that he is eating spinach.      Oh, well, Little Guy and I will love it!

Raspberry Spinach Salad


2 Tablespoons Raspberry Vinegar
2 Tablespoons Raspberry Jam
1/3 Cup Vegetable Oil
8 Cups Spinach, rinsed, stemmed and torn into pieces.
3/4 Cup coarsely chopped Macadamia nuts or toasted almond slices
1 Cup Fresh Raspberries
3 Kiwis, peeled and sliced


Dressing: Combine vinegar and jam in blender or small bowl. Add oil in thin stream, blending well.

Toss spinach with 1/2 of the nuts, 1/2 of the raspberries, 1/2 of the kiwi's and the dressing. Top with the remaining ingredients (nuts, raspberries and kiwis.) Serve immediately.
