Lemon Strawberry Salad

I loooove this salad. My extremely fabulous Sister-in-law Sharalee shared it with me, and it has become one of my all-time favorites. It's all in the dressing..and the strawberries...and the feta....

Lemon Dressing

1/2 C sugar
1/2 C corn oil
3T lemon zest
1/4 C fresh lemon juice
1 tsp whole mustard seed

Blend sugar, zest, lemon juice and mustard seeds together. While motor is running, slowly drizzle in oil. Set aside


1/2 cup candied pecans
1/2 cup dried cherries
1 Green Apple, sliced
1 C sliced strawberries
1/2 cup crumbled Feta
4-6 Cups Baby spinach

**DISCLAIMER - I never actually measure out the ingredients for the salad. I just make it up. I totally guessed on those numbers. Just add as much or as little as you like of certain ingredients - you can't go wrong

I have been crazy for salads lately. I will definately be making this one. How crucial is the corn oil in the dressing?
