Best Salad Ever

I was recently introduced to this recipe and I can't get enough of it. I am sure you could substitute the sugar in the dressing with honey if you are doing the "no sugar" thing.

The cinnamon on the pecans gives this salad a great unexpected spice. YUM

Salad:

1 bag 50/50 mix (baby spinach & greens)
1 bag baby spinach
1 bunch green onion or 1/2 red onion, chopped
1 cup pecans, chopped & rolled in 1 Tbsp cinnamon
1 cup dried strawberries (or fresh strawberries)
1 large avocado, sliced

Dressing:

1 cup sugar
1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
Mix together well until sugar is dissolved.

Add:
11/2 tsp salt
11/2 tsp dry mustard
11/2 tsp poppy seeds
Very, very slowly add while stirring constantly, 1cup oil
Mix salad ingredients and dress with this poppy seed vinaigrette and enjoy!
