Spinach Salad with Poppy Seed Dressing

1 bag tender baby spinach
1/2 to 1 head iceberg lettuce, torn into bite size pieces
top with:
1/2  to 1 cup dried cranberries
1/2 to 1 cup sliced candied almonds
1/2 to 1 cup crumbled feta cheese
sliced mushrooms (opt.)
crumbled bacon (opt.)

Poppy Seed Dressing:
1 cup vegetable oil 
1/2 cup white vinegar
1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon dried mustard
1/4 purple onion, diced
1 clove of garlic, minced

Combine ingredients in blender and blend thoroughly until all bits of onion and garlic are pretty much dissolved. Then add 1 Tablespoon poppy seeds and pulse quickly. Dressing will be slightly pink. Chill before serving. 

*This salad is DELICIOUS. The dressing one of my favorites. Sometimes I use olive oil instead of vegetable oil,  stevia/truvia instead of sugar, and slivered almonds instead of candied ones.
