Walnut Spinach Salad

Hi Everybody!

Welcome to my new cooking blog, Cookin' up North. Some of you have already tried many of my recipes on my other blog, http://stampingupnorthwithlaurie.blogspot.com/ where I made and posted many scrapbook recipe pages. I have decided to separate my two loves...stamping and cooking...with two separate blogs.

Most of my recipes here will be new...but I'll also be posting many of my old favorites in hopes to get all of my recipes located on one blog.
Today I'm sharing a new salad I made....and ate.... almost all by myself...it was SO good! The dressing is awesome and the toasted walnuts really had me reaching for more {and more.} I made it with spinach and when that ran out I used Romain lettuce. It's a winner!
Walnut Spinach Salad

1/3 c. olive oil
3T. sugar {I used Splenda}
2 T. white wine vinegar {I used red}
2 T. sour cream {I used lite}
1/2 tsp. ground mustard
Mix well. Pour on top of fresh spinach, dried cranberries, and toasted walnuts.
