Ridiculously good and stupidly easy. I mixed the dressing with the spinach thoroughly, then literally tossed the onions directly from the flame into the bowl of dressed leaves. Ended up with a nice gentle wilt and warmth that was perfect on a hot summer evening. Excellent and well worthy of a cookout with neighbors (which is what we did).

Good salad! I added a little canned tuna and avocado to make it a full meal. The dressing was excellent!
