Directions:
Make dressing a few hours before (or even a day ahead) to blend flavors. Mix poppy seeds, vinegar,
oil, sugar, salt, mustard, grated onion and refrigerate. Wash spinach (let spinach sit in warm water in sink-helps soil to come off and settle in sink) and lettuce. Tear into bite size pieces. Slice red onion into thin slices. Leave smaller onion circles in tact, but cut large ones in half.

Personal Notes:
Served at Teri's wedding. Very good, but put dressing on just before serving and keep salad cool.
