Spinach and Swiss Salad with Poppy Seed Vinaigrette

From my mum

Another great salad, with lots of flavor. The poppy seed vinaigrette is wonderful and (in my humble opinion) the best part of the salad.

Large bunch of spinach
1/2 red onion, diced
1 cup sliced mushrooms
3/4 cup Swiss cheese, grated
1/2 lb bacon, crumbled
1 cup cherry tomatoes, sliced in half

Poppy seed Vinaigrette
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 tsp dry mustard
1/4 tsp salt
1/3 cup apple cider vinegar
1/2 cup olive oil
1/2 Tbsp poppy seeds

Cook bacon and combine salad ingredients. In a small bowl, mix together dressing and toss in salad or serve on the side.
