Absolutely loved the raisins! I did not use the onions because I was already baking onions and we cannot handle too many onions in one serving. lol. I love a spinach salad, and this one was perfect. Thanks for sharing!

Lovely tasty salad that was perfect as a side with a French Canadian Tourtiere. the bought . This salad with it's sherry soaked raisins was so Mmmm it'll be made over & over again. I used sweet white onions instead of red (I had them on hand). The roasted pine nuts were great as the finishing touch. I give this a full 5 out of 5

Delish! Loved the raisins with the sherry. I'm adopting that for other dishes =). I didn't have pine nuts so I used almonds instead. It was a good combo.
