Balsamic Apple and Spinach Salad

This is one of my favorite salad recipes! Michael's brother's girlfriend made it for a dinner party a couple weeks ago and I immediately had to have this recipe.

Balsamic Apple and Spinach Salad


  • 1 cup vegetable oil or olive oil
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground dry mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Combine the oil, sugar, vinegar, paprika, dry mustard, and salt in a bowl and mix until smooth.


  • 2 Granny Smith apples, chopped
  • 1 (10-oz) pkg fresh spinach
  • 1/4 cup chopped red onion
  • 1 cup crumbled feta cheese
  • 1 cup toasted pecans

Spread spinach on salad plates and top with apples, onion, feta cheese, and pecans. Add dressing to taste.

I HIGHLY recommend this recipe. It is so easy and is guaranteed to impress your dinner guests!
