Spinach Apple Salad with Raw Poppy Seed Dressing

 A festive red and green salad with the perfect blend of a sweet dressing with just the right zing to it. I have long missed the sweet white poppy seed dressing I use to enjoy until recently I was asked to make one. With the swap of only a few ingredients I ended up with a newly found love and stable for my fridge! Happy dance :)

For the Salad:
1 lb Fresh Baby Spinach
2 Gala Apples, cut or cubed
1/2 C Juice Sweetened Cranberries
1/4 C Chopped Pecans
~or use a Mock Feta Cheese
(1 C crushed macadamia nuts with a dash of sea salt and 1/2 tsp nutritional yeast)
Sliced Red Onion (opt.)

Raw Poppy Seed Dressing
In the blender
1 C Pure Olive Oil
3/4 C Agave
1/2 C Apple Cider Vinegar
1 T fresh white Onion, minced
1 T Mustard seed powder
1/2 tsp Sea Salt
Blend until smooth then stir in:
1 1/2 T Poppy Seeds
Shake together and store in the fridge. It thickens a bit more in the fridge then you can shake it up as needed.
Pour a little over your salad and toss together to your liking. Enjoy!
