Spinach Salad with Balsamic Vinaigrette

At a wedding last weekend we had a phenomenal spinach salad filled with red onions, golden raisins and grapes.  What really made it great was the balsamic vinaigrette in which it was tossed.  We came home determined to recreate it.  J did all the work with this one, and it’s incredibly tasty.  The salad quantities are just guesstimates — add as much or little as you like of each ingredient.
