Spinach Salad with Warm Maple Dressing
http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/spinach_salad_with_warm_maple_dressing.html From EatingWell:
The Essential EatingWell Cookbook (2004)
Pure maple syrup, as opposed to artificially flavored and colored "pancake" syrup, is an extraordinary cooking ingredient. Here it adds body as well as rich flavor to the dressing, providing a perfect counterpoint to the smoked cheese.
