Spinach Galician

I had this salad at Solea Tapas in Boston a couple of weeks back.  My family loved it, so I decided to make it at home.  It took a couple of tries to get the dressing right, but it was worth it; the salad is really tasty.   Now if you add lobster claws like I did, that changes a side to a dinner or if you are having a party, maybe an appetizer.  Hope you like it.
1 12 oz package fresh baby spinach, cleaned and washed
4 oz golden raisins
3 oz almond slices
1 clove garlic, minced
Salt and pepper to taste
1/4 red onion, sliced thin
1 and 1/2 oz white vinegar
3 oz grape seed oil or canola oil (not everyone keeps grape seed oil around)
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1/2 pound lobster claw (optional)
Heat sauté pan to medium and then add spinach
Cook until spinach is slightly wilted
In a small bowl mix vinegar, oil and Dijon and whisk to combine
Add salt and pepper and garlic
Add raisins to dressing and let sit for 5 minutes
Put cooked spinach on a plate and pour the dressing over it
Add almonds on top and serve
To create a luncheon or main course, add the lobster
