Summer Spinach Salad

This recipe is dedicated to our Seminary teacher here in town, Brother H. I promised him some great summer salad recipes for summer....AND I failed to keep this promise, BUT I DID make this one...with him in mind. Its packed full of flavor, yummy greens and fruit and topped with an awesome dressing. 
SO... Brother H....EAT up and enjoy!
Better late than never, right?!

Summer Spinach Salad

3/4 bag baby spinach
1 bag "Spring Mix" lettuce
1 lb sliced strawberries
1 can mandarin oranges (drained of course)
sliced or slivered almonds
feta cheese (as much or as little as you want)

Toss together. Serve with maple dressing (recipe below).

Dressing:
5 T. maple syrup
10 T. red wine vinegar
5 T. oil
1 1/4. t. salt
1 1/4 t. pepper

Mix together. Add to salad when serving or put on individual servings.
