Spinach Apple Salad with Spicy Honey Mustard Dressing

Spinach Apple Salad

The other day my sister had a few ladies over for lunch and served us a salad with the most amazing honey mustard salad dressing I have ever had. The dressing had, not only the sweetness of honey but, a depth of flavor that we were all in love with. I seriously wanted to lick my plate clean–if only that would be kosher amongst friends 😉  I had my sister help recreate her dressing recipe and I was so excited to make this salad for my family the next night for dinner. You can really serve this dressing over any type of spinach or lettuce salad. I had some spinach and several produce items to use up, so it made a great topping for a throw-it-together type of salad.
