  • Wash your salad and berries and set aside.
  • *Almonds:*
  • In a small frying pan, combine your almonds and sugar. Cook on medium/low heat and watch closely. Keep stirring as the sugar begins to melt, to keep it from burning. Once sugar has coated the nuts, sprinkle with cinnamon and remove from heat and place on foil to cool.

  • For the salad, layer the spinach, berries and nuts and top with dressing.
