  • 3 Tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 1 Tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper

Spinach Salad:

  • 6 to 8 cups prewashed spinach or spring mix
  • 1 large apple , cored and thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/2 cup walnuts or pecans
  • 1/4 cup crumbled feta cheese
