Spinach Poppyseed Salad

I had this at a friend's house and thought it was so delicious that I asked for the recipe.

Spinach Poppyseed Salad

Salad ingredients:
1 pkg spinach leaves
1 cup cottage cheese
1 cup shredded swiss or mozzarella cheese
5 strips cooked bacon, crumbled
Grapes, cut in half

Salad Dressing ingredients:
1 1/2 tsp. poppy seeds
3/4 cup olive oil
1/2 cup red wine vinegar
3/4 cup sugar
2 Tbsp. grated red onion
1 tsp. salt
3/4 tsp. dry mustard

Blend together dressing ingredients. Refrigerate 1/2 hour. Mix salad ingredients together. Add dressing to salad just before serving.

** The actual recipe adds the rest of the red onion to the salad (minus what's used in the dressing), but my friend makes it without so that it's not too oniony.
