"Thanksgiving" Spinach Salad


1 bag of spinach
1/2 medium red onion (sliced thinly)
1/3 cup raw almonds
1 tsp sugar
1/2 cup feta cheese
1/3 cup dried crandberries
1 bottle "Annie's Naturals - Raspberry Vinaigrette" (THE BEST!)

To candy the almonds
Slowly roast raw almonds in a frying pan on stove (medium low heat). Once almonds begin to brown, add the 1 tsp of sugar. Stir frequently as sugar melts and carmelizes. Remove from heat once a dark brown, remove from pan and place on plate to cool.

To prepare
Wash spinach, and dry.
Add red onion, candied almonds, feta and cranberries. Add dressing to taste and toss.

Serves 4 - 6
