Serves 4

3 tablespoons sliced almonds
2 teaspoons sugar
¼ teaspoon garlic salt
½ teaspoon water
6 cups fresh spinach leaves
1/2 cup mixed berries (strawberries, raspberries, blackberries and/or blueberries)
¼ cup raspberries

FOR THE DRESSING:
1 clove garlic
6 tablespoons lemon juice
¼ cup extra light olive oil
6 drops of stevia
½ teaspoon poppyseeds
Salt and pepper to taste

In a medium nonstick skillet, heat almonds, sugar, salt, water, and add some pepper to taste over medium-high heat. Stirring constantly, allow the sugar to begin to boil and caramelize. Once it begins to bubble, quickly transfer the almonds to a piece of parchment paper. Allow them to cool.

In a large bowl, toss together the spinach leaves and berries. Set aside.

Prepare the dressing by placing the raspberries, garlic close, lemon juice, olive oil, and stevia together. Blend until pureed (or use a hand blender to combine). Add an additional tablespoon of lemon juice and olive oil, to thin the dressing out if desired. Stir in poppyseeds, add salt and pepper.

Drizzle salad with dressing. Top with candied almonds. Serve and enjoy!
