Very Berry Spinach Salad

Hi everyone!  Today I want to share my favorite salad that my aunt Von is famous for!  I always have a heaping helping at every family get together.  Here is what it looks like:


My aunt von got this recipe from Family Fun Magazine.  Here's a close up of this super yummy salad:


Here's what you'll need to make this yummy very berry salad:

 Spinach
 Berries (your choice!  I love strawberries and raspberries best)
Candied Almonds
  
To make the dressing you'll need:

1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/4 cup white vinegar
1/4 cup sugar
1 tbsp poppy seeds
1/2 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp salt

Mix the dressing ingredients together and toss all the ingredients together.  Here is one more pic of my yummy Very Berry Salad:
