    I'd love to try this recipe.

    By 'ground mustard,' do you mean regular hot dog mustard, or do you mean the dry/granular mustard...or something else entirely?

    I have to try this! I love spinach. But what do you mean by Ground Mustard? I'm based in Sweden and there are so many mustards to choose from. Of course I know many of them would do, but it would be interesting to know what kind of mustard you prefer for this. Love your blog. Yummm!

      Its by the spices at the grocery store. Its just powdered mustard.

    I made this salad for a dinner at my in-laws last weekend when my husband's great aunt and uncle came for a visit. They're on a 'lean & green' eating plan and I thought this would fit in well. It was a huge hit! Even I loved it (and I'm not fond of onions or poppy seeds lol). I'm planning to keep the dressing on hand and serve the salad as often as my family will let me get away with! Thanks for a fabulous recipe!
