Loaded Spinach Salad

We had the BEST salad ever at the Baltzer's house on Saturday. it was love at first bite. I called Amber Baltzer to see what kind of dressing she used. the dressing might as well be candy, it is sweet and savory.

Here's the recipe. and yes, it is VERY WORTH IT and easy to make the dressing yourself. and yes, this is the BEST salad i've had in a very long time!!

- 1/2 c. brown sugar
- 1 tsp kosher salt
- 1/2 c. vegetable or canola oil
- 1 tsp dry mustard
- 1/3 c. cider vinegar

salad ingredients:
- spinach
- sliced mushrooms
- avocado
- tomato
- boiled eggs
- crumbled bacon

(I've also used cucumber instead of bacon.)

Grilled Salmon with Lime Butter Sauce

I went back to the Fish Co I blogged about here and got a beautiful piece of Wild Salmon.
So I went online to find an equally beautiful recipe for this fine fish. :)
I found a whole menu on the epicurious (gourmet magazine online recipe site).

> Rice with Pine Nuts and Cilantro (I used 1 bunch of cilantro rather than 3 cups. and I even poured some of the leftover butter sauce on top of the rice)
