Spinach Salad with Warm Maple Dressing

Some of the first crops in season during springtime are maple syrup and fresh, crunchy greens. It was a very good maple syrup making season, so there will be plenty at the market. Try the versatility of a salad with spring greens and use maple syrup in the dressing.  You can make this salad a main dish by adding chicken or another source of protein.
