Cleo’s Spinach Salad

I had this salad served at a friend's over twenty years ago. It was one of my favorites then, and it still is now. Overall, it tends to have a German flavor about it, but you can alter that by adding either bean sprouts or water chestnuts to get a more oriental flair if you prefer.
