I serve this spinach salad every year for our Thanksgiving dinner. The flavor of the apples and cinnamon make it great for the season. It's very quick and easy to prepare, too!

I tried this recipe for the first time last week (on Thanksgiving). It was not reviewed or rated yet, so I saw it as a pretty big risk for me! But I came back to review it, and there are already 3 others who gave it five stars...and I completely agree! My husband has asked for it every day since, and I am making a batch for him to take to work this week for lunch! I added feta cheese to mine, and he has tried pecans. I also left out the onion, and make it with lemon juice from a bottle, and it was still amazing! Read More

Perhaps I managed to do something wrong no one at our thanksgiving dinner cared for it. Read More

I made this salad for our early Thanksgiving this year. Very light, simple and full of flavor. I added toasted almonds and it was a huge success amongst adults and children Read More

I've been on a green juice adventure and decided to use your recipe to make a glass of veggie juice. I did have to tweek it just a bit. Raw cranberries don't peal the apple green onions 1/2 lemon and the spinach (or whatever greens you have). If too tart add another apple or some grapes. Some day I'll make the salad but for now I'm drinking it! Read More

Served for Thanksgiving as a unique way to incorporate cranberries in the meal. It was a light and tasty addition. It will most definitely become a tradition. I substituted Asian pear for the apple as my husband doesn't like apples. It made it fantastic. Give it a try. Read More

This is the best spinach salad I've ever eaten. Thank you, thank you for this recipe. I have 2 teenage vegetarians in the house who love fresh spinach. I swapped dried cherries for the craisins because I had them and threw in some toasted almonds for crunch. Read More

I was very skeptical on this recipe, but I am so glad I tried it! I make this for Thanksgiving and the flavors were perfect for this season, and my family who never touches the salad ate this up. I did double everything BUT halved the cinnamon, and was glad I did. I enjoyed the hint of it but I think more would have been a bit much. Will make this again for sure. Read More

Made this for Thanksgiving as a "bring to." I am NOT a cook and was shocked that everyone really liked this! I even got asked for the recipe so I forwarded your website. Thanks! Read More
