Spinach Salad Dressing

I'm always on the look-out for a new dressing for salads. I don't especially like store bought dressings. This is so simple and absolutely fabulous!

 I made some sugared almonds (almonds, butter and brown sugar cooked in a saucepan) to top this salad and those were also great. What a way to round out a boring dinner of tuna casserole!

Spinach Salad Dressing

1/4 c. sugar
1/4 c. brown sugar
1/4 c. vinegar

Simmer together in a saucepan until sugar is dissolved.

To make the salad shown here:

spinach
blackberries or slice strawberries
sugared almonds
real bacon bits
dressing

Simple and delicious!!! I've made this with strawberries too and it's fantastic!
