Spinach Salad

This is my cousin Rachael's recipie, and one of my favorites.

Spinach Salad

1 bag spinach
1 small head iceberg lettuce, torn up
3/4 lb Swiss cheese shredded
1/2 lb bacon cooked and crumbled
1/2 cup sunflower seeds
1 cup dried cranberries


1/2 Tbsp poppy seeds
3/4 Cup white vinegar
3/4 Cup vegetable oil
1/2 Cup sugar
1/2 tsp onion powder
1 1/2 tsp salt
3/4 tsp mustard powder

Add all ingredients for salad to a bowl and toss. Mix dressing in a tight container. Stir in dressing right before serving so the salad does not get to soggy.

Variation: to make it more of an oriental salad omit cranberries, bacon and sunflower seeds and add mandarin oranges, chow mein noodles and sliced almonds instead.
