  • “This recipe was delicious.I left out the chopped lettuce and just added another bag of baby spinach, that way I didn’t have to cut the spinach up.I also left out the peas and added mushrooms instead.I put a little tobassco in the dressing to kick it up. Everything soaked up the dressing and it was delicious.Only 3 stars cause I had to doctor it up myself.”

  • “What a nice switch from the usual layered lettuce salads.I enjoyed this very much.I did make a few changes only to suit what I had available.I went with all spinach and added mushrooms, as I had some that needed to be used up.I clearly had too much spinach in the bottom, because by time I finished adding the other ingredients, there wasn’t any more room in the bowl. 🙂 There was no mention of the sugar, salt and pepper in the directions, but I presumed it was to be mixed in with the salad dressing.I also added freeze dried red onions in there too so that they would soften up.I didn’t have fresh.To make the dressing a little easier to spread, I added a couple of tbsp of cider vinegar.I don’t think the changes I made affected the original recipe at all, and I’ll certainly be making this often.”
