Apple Spinach Salad

This recipe came from a site with lots of other great recipes, Delicious Meliscious. I changed the amounts of some of the ingredients below--I used half of the amount of dressing ingredients, and we prefer mixed greens and romaine, so I used those lettuces instead. Make the dressing the night before to get it good and chilled--if it has too much bite for you, add a dash of honey or a little more sugar. I LOVED this salad this way and will definitely be making it again and again!
