Apple Cashew Salad with Poppy Seed Dressing

This is a recipe from my friend Janice.  It was served at a party we went to and it was a hit.  The combination is unique and oh so yummy!  The dressing is so good and so creamy!  It has the perfect amount of subtle sweetness. -Kristin

1 (10 oz.) bag spinach leaves
