Spinach-Apple Salad

Southern Living magazine describes this as: "A zesty curry vinaigrette, tossed with spinach and apples, and garnished with peanuts, raisins and toasted sesame seeds. To toast sesame seeds, place a small skillet over medium-high heat until hot; add seeds, and cook, stirring constantly, until lightly browned." Original recipe yield: 6 servings.

2/3 cup vegetable oil
1/3 cup white vinegar
1 tablespoon chutney
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon curry powder
1 teaspoon dry mustard
9 cups torn fresh spinach leaves
3 cups diced Red Delicious apples
2/3 cup salted dry-roasted peanuts
1/2 cup raisins
1/3 cup sliced green onions
2 tablespoons sesame seeds, toasted

WHISK together first 6 ingredients; cover and chill, if desired.
COMBINE spinach and next 5 ingredients in a large bowl; toss with dressing. Serve immediately.
