These are my ingredients - use quantities to suit your tastes and the number of servings.

Fresh spinach
Dried cranberries
Sliced crisp tart apples
Crumbled bacon
Feta cheese
Sunflower kernels
Cranberry Poppy Seed Dressing (I used the Wildtree brand - you could probably use any poppy seed dressing.  Of course, it won't taste quite as good as mine)
