Spinach Salad with Carmelized Onions

My new friend, Michelle, made this salad for us while we were camping last week. If you look closely, you can see this is on a paper plate!! As you will soon see - this wasn't your typical camping food!!

I put this salad on a slice of Rosemary and Olive Oil bread - it was fab. It's also delish all by itself...Spinach Salad with Carmelized Onions
1 bag of fresh spinach (10 oz)
1 pack of sliced mushrooms (16 0z)
1 large red onion - very thinly sliced
6 tomatoes on the vine, diced
Crumbled goat cheese (4 oz)
Litehouse Brand "Spinach Salad" dressing
I know - dressing from a bottle - but, you'll have to trust me on this one (until I find a dressing recipe that is comparable)
Put your sliced mushrooms and thinly sliced red onion in a sautee pan. Sautee them in a little olive oil until the onions are carmelized.
Add the spinach, tomatoes and goat cheese in your salad bowl. Top with mushrooms and onions and toss together. The spinach will wilt from the heat of the mushrooms and onions.
Dress with salad dressing and serve.
