Spinach, Fruit, & Nut Salad

This is my mom's recipe and it's amazing and super easy!

Pecans or Almonds (pecans are my favorite)
Brown Sugar
Fruit - cut into small pieces (see picture above)
(you can use any kind you would like!  For this salad I used: crasins, tangelos, kiwis, strawberries, and apples)
Red Onion (if desired - I usually leave it on the side so people can choose)

1. Roast the pecans or almonds in a pan with brown sugar and cinnamon.  Roast slowly while stirring so the sugar and cinnamon liquefy somewhat.  Then remove from heat.
2. Put spinach, fruit, red onion (if desired), and nuts in bowl and toss.
3. Serve with Briannas Home Style Rich Poppy Seed Dressing - pictured below.
4. Enjoy - trust me, you will.
