What do you put on a spinach salad?
Spinach mixes well with other greens, and is fantastic with fruit. A dressing with a vinaigrette base is best, but the dressing can be warm or cold. Top with your favorite nuts, bacon, tomato, red onion, feta cheese, mushrooms and even hard boiled egg slices.
For this salad, there’s fruit (grapes & mandarin orange segments), a raspberry balsamic vinaigrette dressing and chow mien noodles for crunch.
