Spinach Salad with Sweet Hot Dressing

For me, the secret to eating salads on a regular basis is to make sure I don't fall into a rut with the same old veggies and salad dressing.  It really is fun to be creative!  Mix up things that you enjoy eating and rotate. Try making your own salad dressings. It will not only save you money but will also save you from ingesting the "unknown ingredients" in them as well!
