   less if desired and toss.  Divide into 4 plates.
   Divide chicken, apple, peanuts, raisins and place on

     This dressing if very good and I have used it with
   other types of spinach salads and have also made it
   with low calorie syrup. The original recipe called for
   real maple syrup which makes the dressing extra
   special.
     Serve with a good crusty french bread.
