I love making salads. Its one of those things you can mix and match to get a different result all the time, it is also near impossible to mess up a salad.
By using spinach instead of lettuce you can give your salad an instant nutrient boost. Raw spinach contains antioxidants that help prevent cell damage from free radicals , potentially lowering your risk for cancer and heart disease.
This salad is filled with lots of healthy ingredients that just go perfectly together.
