Spinach Salad with Maple Balsamic Dressing

This salad is the perfect mixture of sweet and salty! The dressing  recipe is something that I have played with over the years and I  have tailored the ingredients to the way I like it. Feel free to play  with the amounts of each ingredient!

Salad Ingredients:

  • 1. Spinach
  • 2. Cranberries
  • 3. Walnuts
  • 4. Bacon

Dressing Ingredients:

  • 1. 1/2 Cup Ackermann Maple Syrup
  • 2. 1 Cup Balsamic Vinegar 
  • 3. 1 Cup Olive Oil
  • 4. 1 Clove Fresh Garlic
  • 5. A few basil leaves, chopped up into small pieces.

Mix together the dressing ingredients in a separate bowl and use an emulsifier to thoroughly blend them (there will be a lot more dressing than you need for this salad). Drizzle over the salad and enjoy!
